Hi Guys,

I amended the list that Paul M put together - it might be easier to just continue to add to this list by filling out the quantity next to your name. Some people, I couldn't find a definitive request as far as quantity of units. Please confirm the list.

Also, given that there's an option to add the enclosure or not, to make things simple would it be easier to choose: a) default is w. enclosure OR b) default is board only? Obviously, I was just thinking of trying to make Lewis' job easier in terms of tracking all the different order variants.

Finally, I would agree with NP993 - looking at the orders this is no insignificant amount of work (heck, just organizing the shipping alone is a fair amount of effort - nevermind the assembly of the kits)...it's incredibly generous of Lewis to do this and I'd have no problem adding some kind of labor on top of this.

Thanks again Lewis!

Still in for 2 complet assambled ones. And I agree that I'll would be happy to add some overhead cost and R&D labor in the total price.

I'm not in on this so I'll comment as a third party. Lewis, you are being way too kind. From past experience I know that whenever someone tries to charge the exact cost on something like this he/she ends up at least a few dollars short. I applaud your determination to do this for free (ex-parts cost) but you should have a small margin at least to cover the inevitable shortfall. I roughed out your parts cost at about $17 so I'd suggest just charge $20 so you're fully covered on costs, even though I personally think you should charge quite a bit more and doubt any here would mind in the slightest. JMHO.

I think Lewis is being overly concerned about making a profit off of RL w/out being (and paying for) vendor status. I can understand his concern esp. in light of him being a Mod.

I think it's been done before but just a suggestion, if LTC uses Starbucks we could get SB gift cards and do it that way rather than having him sell these for a profit.

To be clear, I think he's being overly cautious but I respect his position of concern.

Yes, I would like 1 pre-fab board, w/ enclosure & w/ term. blocks.

I would also like to add... that there can also be an incidental cost if something doesn't work out, gets damaged, has to be re-shipped etc...

can i suggest you take the advice of 2ManyCars and Blue TTop, and round up the price.... $3 is not going to make or break anyone here... and I believe you and the owner of this forum have a good understanding.... you can just decide to make a "Rennlist Donation" if this does indeed become an issue.

I previously made an "at cost" item for another board.... and... if it werent for the generosity of people who gave me DOUBLE than what I asked.... I would have taken a loss at the end of the day....yet... i was still able to ship internationally to people, etc... all for a really low "advertised" price.

Thanks Paul M (and Ash) for making the list... and my standing order (which is on the list)... is for a full complete assembled box w/enclosure and terminal blocks.



ps: any chance of getting a unit out this week?

The list is 65 strong at this point. Even if Lewis were to get $20 as 2Many and Blue suggested, that's hardly reason to be concerned. Larry would not have been concerned! If it's enough, then just make it $20!

Count me in for a complete unassembled kit with enclosure and terminal blocks. Thanks to Lewis for taking this project on and I will happily pay a price that makes it worth your time and effort.

Hello Lewis,
Please count me in for two full assemblies with enclosures and terminal blocks. Please tell me how much to send you. I'm also sending extra $$$ because this is above and beyond what is expected.

Thank you so much !

Bill
