Default Lovoltech power Jfet groupbuy

Although the group buy may not be people's favorite topic these days I am trying to figure out if there are people like me out there that want what they need in order to explore Nelson latest craze: Lovoltech power jfets.

I created the appropriate WIKI page for that already, please don't fill this thread with "me too's" but instead go there and add your name and quantity in the wiki page.

http://www.diyaudio.com/wiki/index.p...ec+Power+jfets

I am not volunteering to do the actual group buy but I want to get the ball rolling.
I am in no need for money, fame or attention. I much rather if someone else with more time and better attitude take care of the PR and shipping.

At this point I would like to open the forum for discussion on how to achive our goal (getting the jfets) in a quick and safe manner that would make everybody happy.

take care,

Grataku,

Thanks for starting this thread.

If i were to make the purchase, I wouldn't mind handling the distribution in the US.

I would not want to be responsible for shipments to Canada and Europe.

Maybe one separate shipment to a member in Canada, and one to a member
in Europe, who could then distribute in their country.

Or maybe this is to complicated?

Just throwing out some ideas.


also what would be a realistic number of devices for a project?

And i'm still stumped on how to attach this device to a heat sink!

Yes, that's a good point. GPs internal to the US are much less painful these days and even so you still run into issues. I recently sold a few of my heatsinks and I had trouble receiving the payment from a member, the letter arrived three weeks later after it had beed inspected.
Having said that splitting up the order into continents maybe more pain than it's worth.

Please add the courty of destination of the fets in the wiki, I'll split that up later. If there are enough people it would make sense to do two, or more, orders.

I think to mount them we need to squeeze them against the heatsink with a bracket. Do you know what i am saying? I'll make a drawing.

Moe,
here's an idea on how to fasten the jfet to the heasink.

The leads are long enough to bend them away from the heatsink and into the PCB.

What is the minumum order? 10xx? We are 1/3 of the way through it seems.

best,

they come in tubes of 75.

so 14 tubes of 75 equals 1050. That would seem to be the minimum order.

Maybe the minimum group order should be 25 pieces, and then in multiples of 25.

(just an idea, as it seems people are ordering in multiples of 25 anyway.)

That way each tube could be cut in thirds... easy to package
and ship that way.

Grataku,

Thanks for the drawing

Seems mounting them that way wouldn't be too difficult.

...maybe a little labor intensive.. but not that hard
