      Only a matter of time, gents. I don't want to piss of my machinist by getting grouchy with him. He may shoot me a very nice "friend" discount.

      Just logged in (I don't come here very often). I'm certainly not going to make another run, but my costs on these was around $25 a puck (for a run of 20 or 25 I think it was for my second run I made) at Alzar in Ottawa, ON Canada. For all the time that somebody is going to spend wrapping, packing and shipping them, the $15 goes to packaging and a tiny pittance for the guy doing all the leg work. Certainly shipping wa extra an charged individually depending on the location and how quickly the purchaser wanted the puck delivered. It's reached time consuming. Undortunatley I'm not going to make another run of these. Certainly the R8 crowd mostly had their fill and I'm not really too interested in making another batch and potentially sitting on a pile of inventory. From a couple of the TT owners that did buy them from me, I hear nothing but positive feedback, same for all the R8 guys that have them. All the details are on my website. Including a google sketchup file with all the dimensions.

      Not to worry. I am organizing this batch. If you've been following the thread, you'll know that I already have a machinist working on a quote. I spoke to him today in fact to push this along. I believe I tightened the thum screws a bit, and they know it's a serious opportunity for them.

      Be forewarned. I don't expect them to do this for 25 a pad. I have no doubt it will be a bit more. I also don't have time to shop it around to squeeze a few more bucks out of the price and give the order to an unfamiliar machinist. I trust the company, and they do outstanding work.

      Yes, I know that shipping and handling will be a pain. The way I will handle it is I will only ship on Saturday, and only those that have paid upfront for the part, shipping materials and shipping costs.

      I"ll also want firm committments before outlaying the cash to make the first batch.

      The goal is for everyone to get their jack pad(s) prior to the spring thaw when we want to swap to our summer setups.

      Patience my friends! It's only January 17.

      Oh, and if someone wants to make their own, or get their own machinist to make it, I'll be happy to share my files. I created a solidworks version, and can save the print in many different formats.

      Dont want to step on anyone's toes but ... Since I'm in Ottawa, perhaps I should approach the original machine shop to see if they're interested in doing another run of these suckers ?

      Don't worry about hurting my feelings. I just want the jack pads for the group. PM me with your email and I'll send you the files.

      PM sent. I've called Alzar (outfit who did the original orders) and am awaiting a call back from "the guy who can help me".

      In the interim, it would be a good idea to see how many jack pads were talking about (for the time being, lets assume the cost shipped will be under $60.). Roll call ...
