    looks like we are at 25, counting the one you guys are gonna comp me :D

    Some of the emails are coming in, I need to be someplace where I can start writing out a list off my emails and organize what everybody wants and where they would like it shipped. I'm not limiting this to a certain number, but once we get to 30+ we can set a cut-off date.

    2. put your ADV name somewhere
    3. how many units and adaptors
    4. email addy you want me to use, I have a couple emails for some of you

    I just checked with UPS and got a price of $15 to ship from FL to Denver, Georgia will be cheaper and Oregon will be more, but $15 might work out as an average. It would be a nightmare trying to bill everyone for the exact shipping fee, since I won't know until I actually ship. If these will fit in a USPS medium Flat Rate box I can ship them out of my office in FL for <$11 each, although I have had problems tracking USPS packages. Think about it....

    from the USPS site, one of the medium Flat Rate boxes is 13 5/8" x 11 7/8" x 3 3/8" which is 1/4 inch longer than the longest dimension of the factory box, plus for the guys who order adapters I can just throw them in the same box. I'm leaning towards USPS....

    I'm interested, have a few questions.

    Do you have a total cost per unit at max discount including:

    1- the unit itself
    2- overseas shipping
    3- domestic shipping via USPS
    4- gift donation

    Have you reached # for max discount?

    Have you made contact yet with the overseas seller to confirm the deal?

    Cutoff date to be in group buy?

    I've read all the posts, but still a little unsure of the answers.

    Thanks

    The cost if you buy 1 directly from Are is 117 E (shipped) which I believe is about 150 USD.

    list updated this morning. 28 inmates have ordered 29 tools, plus various adapters. Of the 28 inmates, 6 have not confirmed with me. I'm thinking I'll shoot them a PM and see if they are still onboard.

    Please, please, pretty please check the list and LMK if I fooked up. The emails got a little confusing for a non-techy guy like PMR. I want to be sure everyone gets what they wanted, or at least what they ordered.

    Email from Are this morning, so we should be a "go" if we get the orders:

    Hello!

    Pricing is not changed for You. To USA max weight 1box by post is 31,5kg. One tool is aboat 1,5 kg. It means we must send 2 boxes, if You need 30pcs.
    One box aboat 23kg. Post prizing to USA is 10,9EUR one box+3,8EUR 1kg. It is 98,3EUR 1box. Total shipping to USA 30Tyre Mounting Tools 196,6EUR.
    After payment we can deliver tools in 7days.

    Best Regards!

    Are


    Google tells me that's $256 for the International shipping, not counting the adapters. 256 / 29 inmates (assuming 30 tools ordered) = $9 each, maybe $10 each would cover the tools + adapters.

    I've never used a credit card to order overseas, are there any other charges the CC company might add to the bill for the transaction? I've done International wires both ways, but never a CC.

    I'd like to be able to order at least 30 units, but more would be OK too (unless we got to needing a 3rd shipping box - looks like ~ 20 tools per box). More than 30 might be better in case anyone has to bail at the last minute (don't want the order to drop below 30), but I don't want to get stuck with more than one "left-over" :D

    I've never done anything like this before, I'm open to any suggestions...

    PMR out

    croc had apparently communicated with Are and researched a custom adapter which he would like to order if the group buy goes forward. It is 15.6 mm X 175 mm. I haven't confirmed the pricing that croc gave me with Are yet. I would prefer to not be ordering a lot of different "custom" pieces so as to keep the order "simple" but if others need that size, I'm sure we can get them done.
