    I figure resistance is futile...

    Now... about that LCR meter...

    BTW the Mouser shopping list adds up to $25 w usps shipping. The A1302 sensors are $1.50 while the AD22151 are more like $20 ea off ebay..

    That leaves only three.

    I multiplied the mouser order out by 11 and it comes to $191, no big savings there except on shipping which is hardly a consideration compared to sorting out all the parts and mailing off a dozen packages. I would consider having Elepro send all US-bound boards to one address via the most secure way we can afford and redistributing them from within this continent. It might make sense to split Canadian orders off from the US ones just to save the 2 weeks per border crossing.

    It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure. Albert Einstein

    I imagine Elepro can get more boards made up if needed in another 4-6 weeks if there's lots of interest?

    This sounds like a good idea.

    .... about shipping, in the cost of 30 euro is included an economic shipping by letter.... it is not trackable and not insured but i think it's the fast/economic method.... i sent a PCB to David king some times ago and it took 7 days to Portland Oregon....

    i could ship by another economic method (registered letter)... it is trackable (not insured) but this slow down the delivery because it has to be processed and registered when it arrives in US.... i sent a cnc winder controller a month ago (full price...out of group-buy) to Las Vegas and it took 20 days...

    let me know....

    But I've got all parts at home and I'm not interested by a group buy at Mouser.
    sorry.

    you're right BadHorsie, it can be a little more according to the payment method.

    I've sent a private message with my email address but I am not certain private messaging is working as it is not showing up in sent messages. If you have not received it, please let me know. Otherwise I will wait for your payment request.

    The state of the message is shown by what folder it's in:
    Outbox means the person hasn't read it
    Sent means the person has

    Thanks Elepro received PayPal payment request. 30 Euro sent your way.

    For those interested PayPal Conversion Rate as of Jun 3, 2010: 1 U.S. Dollar = 0.801903 Euros. The total came up to 37.42 US dollars with no additional PayPal fees.

    I can't wait to get this. I might need a little help along the way from you guys to get it assembled.

    I'm still in! PM sent.
    I have no problem with the airmail delivery. It worked just fine last time and tracking is overrated.
    Bad Horsey,
    You shouldn't have any trouble getting help from folks around here.

    Still not showing up and there is no outbox in the user CP. The good news is that Elepro did receive the PM and I received the payment request. Already paid and next is ordering the parts.

    It would be nice to select an appropriate enclosure for this from Mouser so we can get that at the same time.

    Also it looks like one of the caps is backordered at Mouser in the US, perhaps a substitution is in order?

    Actually two items, the .1mfd cap and the 16 post header (517-929834-01-16 ................ lcd header).

    estimated arrival date for the cap is june 23rd and the header has a 4 week lead time. I went ahead and ordered anyway as I am in no particular hurry. I'll be on the road pretty constantly for all of june.

    Others may want to look into a substitute.
