Default UK Heatsink Group Buy

I have found a UK supplier of heatsink extrusion, and I was wondering if there was any interest in a group buy.

This thread is initially for expressions of interest, once I have an idea on numbers, then I can get some prices, set up a Wiki, etc. The manufacturer promises he will be very competitive on price, but at the moment will give no exact costings until he has a better idea of the order.

As well as doing standard flat types, he also does some more interesting shapes, one of which is illustrated below. I would like these, they are just a bit different, and my initial idea, (open to majority decision of course), is to get a quote for 200mm lengths, either black or clear anodised. This seems a good compromise between size and capacity, but of course for higher dissipation amps you could just bolt a couple together.

Hi there!

I'm based in London and gettign parts together for the Krell KSA-50 clone, and would be very interested in getting a pair of clear anodised heatsinks. I liked that curved one you pictured BTW.

Cheers!

Do you have a larger pic? The dimensions are a bit tough to read in that one.

Of course, if we all lived in the US, I would be recommending these:

I'd be interested in either 4 of 8 of the curved 200mm sinks in black dependent on the end cost.

Hi,

I'm based in Birmingham and I'm planning to build a number of gainclones for my next project, I'm definately interested in a couple of those heatsinks picture, with the curved profile. They look like they could be used in some interesting designs!

Keep me posted!

Hi all

I'm also in the midlands and would be up for two or more curved ones if the price is right.

Is anyone in any particular hurry for these? I'm not, so I'm tempted just to leave this running for a week or so to see if we can get the numbers up.

Ok, folks, I got an initial pricing for 24 pieces, black anodised, 20 approx plus vat and delivery to you. If we can get it up to 50, then it will come down to 17.

Ring round your friends! Get more people involved! I'm sure we can get to 50 if we put our minds to it!
