Kit cost estimates

Post by benheck » Sun Feb 13, 2005 7:14 pm

These aren't completely final but they should be in the ballpark:

CNC Kits: Includes decals, tact switches and white LED's. Shipping to continental US is included in price:

PSone CNC: $92
Atari CNC: $82
NES CNC: $90
SNES CNC: $84

CNC cut plates for the hand-built projects: Yes, sounds strange but will save you time. Includes decals, tact switches and white LED's. Shipping to continental US is included in price. Does NOT include side walls (which are made from thin aluminum strips from the hardware store)

Average: $65-$70. Doesn't sound like a WHOLE lot less but in general the hand-built projects are physically larger and therefore consume more engraving plastic than the CNC ones. And the shipping/parts overhead is still there too.

I'm going to try and have the ordering thing ready by next weekend. Hope that's not too late!

so let me get this right. The kits are for the hand built projects and not the cnc ones in the book. I don't know of anyone that has a cnc machine. It would be cool if you made kits for the cnc projects.
