Default 2008 Maxon Motor Group Buy

2008 Maxon Motor Group Buy
Hi. I'm starting this new thread for a new group buy of Maxon Motor and PCB Controller because there was a lot of demand for it after the 2007 GB was closed.

However, It will be a much simpler project this time with only PCB / Motor / Pulley offering, you do the rest. So, I repeat, simpler this time, no parts kit, no partial kit, no tape, no motor pod or custom plate. Sorry but the previous GB was a logistic nightmare and very time consuming.

To let you know, I already have 8-12 members interested.

I would need 25-30 orders for the PCB (PCB minimum order is 30) and 20 orders or more for the motor.

This project comes with an extensive documentation. Please read the 2007 Maxon GB thread for numerous discussion, project history and a lot of info. All these informations is compiled into the latest documentation version 1.4, soon available on Bas Horneman website. I'll post the link when available.

The previous group buy prices were:
Here are the price breaks for motor 110191 a-max 26mm

1 $250.00
2 $125.00 each
3-4 $106.70 each
5-19 $83.90 each

PCB, my own version (2.0) of Mark Kelly design, with integrated battery charger, leds indicators, etc... was 30$ each with optional gold plating. All previous members agreed that it was a very nice PCB and liked it.

Greg Nuspel worked very hard to design and produce a custom pulley for it. The custom pulley is needed to support both 33/45rpm speeds. It may be possible that he contributes for an other run of pulleys, but it is not sure. The current controller support 33rpm speed using a standard Teres Tape pulley that you can buy directly from Teres Audio. The custom pulleys were 25$ each Tape or String Drive. I would like to keep it to just one type of pulley this time, to simplify Greg's life and reduce options as possible.

We will see if there is any interest. Feel free to email me.

Thanks...
