Adressed this with lot_lizard who's well known here for his great efforts in the vintage IBM area and he's very willing to do a GB together with me. The idea here being that one guy on each side of the pond can handle the domestic orders (EU/US) while I will additionally handle all other international orders. To get a reasonable price per unit (we're aiming for something <25US$ or even <20US$) we should order at least 50 units. I am totally fine with stocking a few controllers to help reach MOQ and continue to sell them at a "retail price" once the GB has ended.
Please be aware that we are talking about the controller "Beamspring-USB-Rev4" from this thread:
Maybe we can even get the PCB revised/optimized a little
Well please state your interest by participating in the poll. Comments below.
IMPORTANT: You have two options in the poll. PLEASE only use the second option to indicate your interest in a solenoid driver board and do not vote two Beamspring Controller options.
Taking orders now, fill in the form please:
PLEASE SUBMIT ANOTHER FORM FOR ORDER CHANGES. ALL BUT THE LATEST ENTRY PER USER WILL BE DELETED. TIMESTAMP OF THE FIRST ENTRY PER USER COUNTS FOR FCFS.
- No promised delivery date yet. Delivery scope will be provided when invoicing starts
- Limited quantities, FCFS
- US orders will be fulfilled by lot_lizard from within the US, all other orders will be filled by me
All the funds for this GB are still WITH ME (WODAN) and the controllers have not yet been ordered with the factory. This GB will be ordered along with the ModelMF controllers to give us the best pricing but the MF controller order has been delayed due to design considerations. Since I have gotten a few requests for extras, I will re-open the order form until the factory order is due.
Participants who are disapointed by this and want out please reply to your GB invoice email and I can refund you.
