    Default Mighty Mini LED Flood PCB group buy

    OK, folks.

    Time is short. Ordering for the PCBs for the Mighty Mini ends on Monday, 3/1.

    Since Frank will ship up to 40 boards for $5.95 shipping, it makes some sense to order as a group the PCB boards for the LED floods.

    I'm willing to coordinate this, but we've got to move fast.

    Indicate here if you want to order and how many PCBs. I would like to get folks to Paypal me the money for the boards, since they will have to be paid before we can order them.

    PCB's are $4.00. There will be a small uplift for Paypal fees. Ballpark total cost for a PCB would be $4.50 for one board, and $42.00 for 10.

    If we get more than 40 boards, the shipping might go up some, but will be spread out.

    I'd like to suggest a Friday or Saturday close for the quantities wanted, and payment by Sunday night.

    I"m willing to do the bulk purchase, and then deliver the boards at the next TASL meeting or whenever it makes sense for you.

    Note that I travel to Raleigh and Charlotte (and sometimes Columbia, SC) fairly often for work, and so might be able to arrange a delivery sooner.

    What do you folks think about this?

    Hi Mark. I appreciate your organizing this. Please put me down for 8 boards. Also, can you remind me of approximately how much in parts costs to complete the flood ?

    Hey Mark,

    Walter and I are going to combine our order so we can have them sooner. We interested in a group buy for LEDs. I'm not sure where to start.

    The cost of the LEDs is $40 per board from CeCe's - on Ebay. If we could get 20 or more sets in one order, then the price would drop to about $35 per set. This includes the resistors and the terminal blocks.

    The flood enclosures cost about $10 at Lowes HW.

    All - the orders get placed next week, and then there's a 2-3 week delay before they ship out from Frank. Probably take a week or so to get them. And then delivery - either at the next TASL meeting or prior to that if desired.

    I plan to order 2-4 boards myself.

    I changed my mind. I will join the group buy. Mark put me down for 15 boards. I want to light my yard so bright that the airport will be envious. My house is in the high level glide path for RDU airport. Now the pilots will have something to talk about. Actually, I want to make a few of these into spotlights with LEDs at tighter angles. Walter needs to put in his own order (which means get your own Bucko). Thanks Mark.

    If anybody tells Deb how much I'm spending on this, you will be own my poopy list forever.

    Al,

    $60 for boards isn't bad.

    However $600 for LEDs , and $ 150 for housings, and 60 DC channels, now its starting to add up.

    I'll only tell Deb that you spent $60 for the boards.

    You need to arrange the lights in a straight line and sequence sequentially to mimic an airport ILS glide slope lighting.

    Just so we're clear - this is for the PCB board only. A separate LED order may or may not be planned. Payment will be necessary up front, and I'll PM you the total by the end of this week.

    As of tonight, here's the breakdown:

    Mark - 2 or 4
    Denny - 8
    Al - 15
    Walter - 2

    The best resource for this is the main thread at DIYC:

    http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...ead.php?t=7799

    The LEDs are available at http://c-leds.com
    Look for the "Specials" at the bottom on the left hand side.

    Colleen does have an Ebay store, but doesn't have the same special listed there. Prices were usually the same anyway.

    OK, after doing some calculations and seeing how many have signed up for their boards, here's my best estimate on final costs for the boards. This is a cost per board depending on quantity of YOUR order. Shipping of the bulk order to me has been included along with any other fees.

    Qty ordered Cost/board
    1....................... $4.50
    2-4.................... $4.40
    5-9.................... $4.30
    10 or more......... $4.20

    Rather than post my Paypal id here on the board, I'll be PM'ing each of you who has listed a quantity with it so you can send the correct amount. I need these by Sunday night, so I can place the order with Frank.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    OK. I now have orders for 35 boards plus my order is almost 40. Rather than mess things up with trying to figure shipping for more than 40, I will place the order tonight for 40 boards. That way, if anyone else wants a board, I will have a few extra available.

    As an FYI, I slightly miscalculated the shipping per board, so the $ amount was a little off. However, a few folks chose to pay a little extra, and covered the shortfall. Even if that hadn't happened, I would have covered it, since it was just a few pennies per board.

    Glad to help out the crew.
