Electronics/Handle packages for sale.

Post by daniel_reetz » 09 Jun 2009, 10:46

Provided my materials arrive from Hong Kong, at the end of this month, I'll have ten electronics packages for book scanners. They'll be very similar to the one I made for jradi.

Post here to reserve one. The total cost per-unit will be $25, and that includes shipping within the USA.

Any profit from this initial batch will go to powering this website.

Do they come with the button on the handle as well as the handle itself?

Yes. They will be just like this picture, unless you request that I leave something out.

I see you're in Vancouver, though. Your shipping will almost certainly cost a bit more.

Cool thing: Black Pants Theater is making a play from a project I did with Meg Holle, opening in Vancouver this fall:

The original project is here:

I hope to be there for the debut, maybe we can meet.

Can't wait to get the parts in and ship these things out.

Worst case, I'll get you to ship it to Point Roberts, WA, where I can easily drive down and get it from a place that'll hold packages for people on an ad hoc basis. So no worries.

Looks interesting -- when is it opening? I might be out of town for 2-3 weeks in October. If you're here and I'm here, though, I'll definitely meet up with you. I've got a buddy who's a theatre major who'd probably be interested, too (although probably not in the book scanning stuff). I'll be forwarding the links to him.
