Exotic Metal Orbs

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2016-09-19

Exotic Metal Orbs are a unique precision machined spherical keepsake container made from titanium, copper, stainless steel, or brass. Whether you give it away as jewelry or gift box, store your items in it, or simply use it as desk art, the Orb’s precision fit and craftsmanship are sure to please. Both the Brass and Copper Orbs will show patina naturally, which many find very desirable. The Orb will become mottled, darken, and lose its luster. If you prefer a polished finish, you will need to give them a buff from time to time with a polishing compound. Though Stainless and Titanium Orbs do a pretty good job at holding their shine, you will want to re-polished them from time to time with a polishing compound to brighten them up.

@creator, I love your titanium orb. Hope to see a XL titanium orb version this year. I would gladly buy three. : )

Review from Kickstarter
@Dru - I can't comment on autosol since I've never used it and don't know what is in it. What I used for the Exotic Orbs is a product made by Iosso. It's their bio-based polish and works on all metals.

Hey guys. What's the best polish to use for the copper orb? I played with it and now I have some nice finger print discolouration lol. Is autosol to abrasive?

@TheTomas - thanks for your feedback. Always nice to hear from a satisfied backer. We do have extra Exotic Metal Orbs available to backers for a limited time at the original add-on price plus shipping. The Exotic Metal Orbs will be in our Etsy store but not at the original Kickstarter price. For backers interested in purchasing more Exotic Metal Orbs, it's best to direct message us through Kickstarter to let us know which Orbs you would like.

I received my titanium orb and it's so fantastic, it made me realize how nice your work is, no matter the material. I subsequently purchased some aluminum orbs from your etsy store for myself and as a gift, but this leaves me with a problem. I now want to own a stainless orb. Are they going to be sold on your etsy store sometime soon, or can I arrange to purchase one you might have remaining from the campaign? Please let me know. Thank you.

@Angainor - Sorry for the delay. We tried to ship all the rewards before Christmas but just couldn't get all the titanium polished in time. So we are still working on shipping out the balance of the domestic backers. We expect to have all rewards shipped by mid next week - January 4th.

Review from Kickstarter
Still haven't received my orb or even a shipping update since 11/23. Is there any update on domestic shipping?

@Justin Lowe - Yes, the Exotic Metal Orbs will thread together with the original Orbs.
Justin Lowe
Review from Kickstarter
Just curious, will these orbs mix and match with your original orbs?
Progressive Products
Review from Kickstarter
@W L Eric NG - You are correct. The survey is only asking for Add-Ons. Original tier reward items do not need to be entered into the survey.
W L Eric NG
Review from Kickstarter
Just want to confirm when filling the survey,
How many XXX Orb Add-Ons did you pay for?
I do not need the enter whats included in the original pledge, only enter the number for those extra, right?
Progressive Products
Review from Kickstarter
@Mr. Tangent - The maximum length of any object the Orb can hold is 1.335 inches. The standard USB drive I own is about 2.25 inches long and will not fit into the Orb. The Orb stand shown in update #2 is made from aluminum and is then anodized. We will be testing the stand with the Orbs to make sure there is minimal marring from its use. If needed, we may change the stand material to something softer. The o-ring we used for the photos in the campaign is a #111 (7/16 I.D. x 5/8 O.D.) We will be shipping each Orb with both the larger stand and a #111 o-ring stand.
Mr. Tangent
Review from Kickstarter
Last, comment, promise! :) What is the anodized stand made of (aluminum)? Will it mar the Orbs? And in the photos before the stand was announced, what size/type o-ring are you using to hold Orbs in place? Can we purchase them in case we prefer the o-rings to the included stand?
Mr. Tangent
Review from Kickstarter
Saw Update #2, so I see base comes with it. Still curious on USB thumb drive question.
Mr. Tangent
Review from Kickstarter
I see a micro-usb drive will fit, can you confirm if a normal sized usb drive would fit? Also, do Orbs come with the o-ring to keep them from rolling off desk?
Progressive Products
Review from Kickstarter
@Bicman - The Orbs measure 1.600" in diameter.
Bicman
Review from Kickstarter

@David - Thanks for backing! For add-ons, simply increase your pledge for the amount of a copper Orb - $64.
David Paul Murray
Review from Kickstarter
I have pledge for a stainless steal orb.. But I also want a copper.. How do I do that?
Progressive Products
Review from Kickstarter
@JJK - Yes, increasing your pledge by $64 will get you the titanium and copper Orb set.
Thanks for backing!
JJK
Review from Kickstarter
I am interested in a two-orb set (copper + titanium). I have already pledged for the titanium. Can I get just the two-rod set if I increase my pledge by the amount required for the copper? Thanks!

@TRIDANK - The Orbs do come with an o-ring that will make them water-resistant, not waterproof. @Oscar - Yes, copper as well as brass are natural antimicrobial materials.
Oscar A rodarte ☤
Review from Kickstarter
Is the copper antimicrobial
TRIDANK
Review from Kickstarter
will these have an o-ring to make them waterproof?
Progressive Products
Review from Kickstarter
@Stephanie - We can't say for sure if all the metals we use are FDA compliant or not, so as a general statement we must say that the Orbs we make in various metals are not intended to be used with food items. @WL - Correct, regular pricing for the three Orb tier.

Hello, Stephanie I know for a fact that titanium is. James
