    I just priced out a build at JLCPCB using your gerbers. Total cost to me, including shipping, would be $110 for five boards, so $22 each. I'm happy to do a run if I can share the cost with at least three others, willing to pay the $22 board price plus US shipping which might be another $5-10. I'll keep two boards for myself.

    Otherwise, Dave please save a board for me! I'm sure one or another of my European friends will be coming over for VCF West in August.

    Let's give it a week and see what others say.

    I'll keep one of mine back for you just in case you want it.

    If I have interest in my 'spare' PCB's - I will give you first refusal on the last one left.

    I will be going to our DEC Legacy event in November - so will take what I have left in case anyone wants to build one. November will be the deadline if you want one of mine.

    How does that sound for a plan?

    I have sent you an e-mail with regard the PM you sent me (just in case it ends up in your spam box for some reason).

    Dave

    Arrgh!! I couldn't stand the suspense, so I placed my own order with JLCPCB.

    There should be 5 boards on this side of the ocean some time next week.

    Anyone interested, let me know!

    I've just come back to this thread after forgetting about it for a year, and I must say I'm impressed with the progress!

    I'd much appreciate one if you still have any left! (looks like maybe now Jack bought his own)
    I'm also on the same side of the pond, so postage shouldn't be too bad.

    PS: I do however know someone who will be traveling from the UK to the US, but not until the 22nd of August.

    Tom,

    I am sure we can come to some arrangement to recover some of my costs. Let me work something out for you. Although it will be next week now - I will be on a business trip this week. Where are you based in England?!

    Ok, I am going to be a bit of a tease now...

    I have been working on the front panel today, I have uploaded an image of how far I have got.

    Don't worry about all of the components that are off the board yet (mainly current limiting resistors). They are to be added when I am back from my business trip. Also, don't worry about the ugly areas for the pushbuttons and switches. I haven't got around to creating a footprint for these yet - so I have just stuck large pads on the board where the pushbuttons and switches will go.

    Dave
