Just for those here who are a bit worried and thinking of purchasing two kits would people be interested in a supp kit with one or two extra of each component, (depending on the component). this will be cheaper than having two complete kits, as there are a large number of expensive and caps that are all the same value. and the same with some chips. This should be quite a lot cheaper.

I was going to propose this, just to add a couple of pieces more of each components, especially the smallest one. They can just disappear if you sneeze on them. We could also include the 5.1 smd for the main amp boards.

If we want to go the extra mile, we could just include "everything that is not covered by other GB, excluding mosfets".

Of course, I would be in for one kit.

Best Regards,

About the extra parts above I definitely am considering it. However due to EUVL's insistence none of the parts are that small here . However consider it done there will be extra components in each kit, unless people complain. I will give new prices soon.

About the everything else kit. I would rather keep it seperate from the protection board kit. But of there is interest I can include the other parts apart from the FETs (MOSFET and JFET) that should be Cheaper. I'll give a price assuming 80% take up with the above soon. Then people can choose which they would like.

Considering to organize a GB for the "everything else" I had a good look at the prices from Mouser and there should be something like 20-30% to save making kits for > 10 AMPs. The main saving being on the main rail caps.
Considering PayPal fees, shipping cost (which is free from Mouser) for a total BOM cost of about 130-150 euro (on the top of my head) makes the margin slim.
Maybe, a partial "everything else" GB covering only "small" components that add little or nothing to the shipping cost of the protection board kits would be the best idea. Probably large components (i.e. CAPS) are better sourced and distributed regionally.
Just my thoughts,

Put Andrew T. down for 2 parts kits.

I will watch the options and decide what "extras" I may want.

I have started building a small stock of SMD components, mostly resistors and transistors. Any unused parts will add to that stock.

Thanks very much for your hard work during board design and now for this offer!

I'd be interested in one kit for a protection board and most probably also in another one assorting "small, lightweight parts" for the build.

I agree with NicMac that it is not economical to ship 16 power supply caps weighting over 1000g in total around the globe.

If GB covering "small" components , I like 1 kit.

If no additional "small" components, I need 2 kit.

I also maybe interest "everything else" GB.
