My first official order thread!
To fund the next (and hopefully final) revision of my RGB Switcher, I made two different Buffered Multiples. I only have 17 of each of these for sale. I will likely have more made at a later date.
Both modules are of course video-rate multiples and with cascaded inputs, each module can be used in several ways. the Dual 1:3 mult may be used as a Single 1:6 mult and the YRGB mult may be used as a 1:12 mult, Dual 1:6, 1:9 & 1:3, and more!
These would be great companions for the upcoming RGB switcher which will now have a switched VC input for the threshold pot. While these are labelled for YRGB, consider using the “Y” for several daisy-chained RGB switchers.
Module (A) DIY PCB - 1:3 Distribution Amplifier - $16
Step 9: backside header
Users may choose to use a ribbon cable or one 6-pin stackable header and one 6-pin male pin header.
Start by connecting the male and female headers together, then insert it between the boards and solder each side.
It is the other end of Germany for sure, thanks for answering anyhow @meudiademorte @Fox, how much is the postage to Germany? It still might make more sense to ship a few to one person in Germany and they then distribute them from here, because postage within Germany is cheap. I’ve got plenty of the right angled Thonk jacks & LM6172s here.
& can even build a unit or two if someone doesn’t have the soldering know how or equipment.
I am going to find out shipping cost tomorrow. The post office has already closed today.
Looking online, a few shipping options may be:
“First-Class Package International Service” = 14.75 USD, delivery date “varies by location.”
“Priority Mail International® Small Flat Rate Box” = 37.45 USD, delivery may be 6-10 days.
I cannot guarantee these prices, but I will find out for sure tomorrow.
It’s hard to beat the USPS prices that Fox quoted, for individuals/small companies. (Larger companies can get negotiated rates from some shipping companies.) Shipping internationally from the US pretty much always costs a lot. Might be able to get it down a little by shipping in an envelope of some kind instead of a box (if it’s just PCBs), but then you run the risk of damage with international shipments especially.
That said, putting a few pcbs together and masking-tape them together so they don’t slide against each other makes for a pretty tough little thing. A tight sandwich of cardboard with masking-taped PCBs in between, put in some sort of envelope can be a decent method. I believe that’s how Pusherman shipments are packaged, and I’ve seen similar done with a few other PCB sellers.
