Second batch won't be same price, I am afraid.
Doing it once for charity is enough, considering the huge effort required that you do not see.
So those who had blind faith in me are duly rewarded.

Lucky Horio.

my guess on the lines are a change in density caused either in manufacturing or by clamping during machining . were those lines visible prior to anodizing ?

cheers Woody

We really don't know the reason yet. We change material supplier and we'll try to machine differently for the coming "test" piece. For this 30 pieces, I've seen them after brush but before anodizing, not after CNC machining. I didn't notice there are lines on the surface.
Usually CNC clamping is at the side walls.
We'll see in a week's time hopefully. (Finger crossed)

Option 2 of the F5X case GB, which includes all cutouts and internal parts is 360 Euros without Conrad heat sinks, and without shipment costs, is 360 Euros.

Bear in mind this is volume price and we make no profit.
So commercial, one-off price is likely to be substantially higher, if you can find someone who can do it to the quality and is interested at all, that is.

And no, our factory is too busy to do any more machining service this year, even if price is not an issue for you.
Sorry to disappoint you, but thank you for your interest and appreciation.

Just wondering if the reject parts will be offered at lower price instead of being thrown away.

No.

You don't get reject parts from Porsche or Ferrari or Rolls Royce .....
Not even from Toyota's.

I don't know about that. I bought my Maserati from the President of the company as a second. I saved a lot of money that way.

I guess it worked out in the end, I wrecked it doing three times the speed limit...

Heya fellows, regarding the 2SK1530/2SJ201 matching, the 4 devices in each channel should be tightly matched, but does both left & right channel needs similar tight matching as well?

cheers
