I just got this email from Herrick over the weekend. If you want one of my favorite wheel hoes before they disappear, this is the last chance:
Greetings From Planet Whizbang,
Well, it was quite a year, to say the least.
In the midst of all kinds of world and national crisis, it was an incredibly busy year here at Planet Whizbang. We sold out of most everything, except poultry shrinkbags. And then, later in the year, we we were out of those for about a month. Our supplier couldn’t keep us supplied.
It is with the busyness of this last year in mind that I have decided to discontinue selling parts to make Whizbang chicken pluckers. The very last plucker parts “Shebang” packages will go on sale At This Web Page on January 1, 2021.
I will also stop selling Planet Whizbang wheel hoe kits in 2021. My last production run of the kits will go on sale January 30, 2021 At This Web Page. For those who may be interested, I blogged today about the end of my Wheel Hoe business At This Link.
I will continue to sell project plans, bucket irrigation kits, grape trellis connectors, and Classic American clothespins (for a little while longer) at Planet Whizbang. Poultry shrinkbags will be our major income producer at PoultryShrinkbags.com.
By discontinuing some products I hope to free up time to develop new products and to create some YouTube videos. In other words, to pursue some creative ideas that I haven’t had time to pursue.
Thanks for taking the time to read this update. I hope you and yours are faring well, and looking forward to 2021. It is a little intimidating to consider, but a positive attitude does help. 👍
Best Whizbang Wishes,
Herrick Kimball is an innovator and a true American entrepreneur. I look forward to seeing what he creates in the years to come. I have enjoyed his YouTube channel. Though he says Planet Whizbang is going out of business, what he’s doing sounds more like a reshuffling to me. I’ll bet he can’t help but keep himself busy with creating and marketing new inventions.
All the best, Herrick!
