A 99 is smaller than a 56, but if you only have one the 99 is probably the better one.

Kits have been posted to Hajj, thunk303 & bigaudioscotto today.

This took longer than I had promised because my supplier let me find out about a back order when the package arrived. It took several more days to fill the shortage.

Lerg's kit will go out tomorrow.

jmsuter will have PM shortly.

1) #99 Speedball pen nib
1 oz. Microscale MI-4 Gloss coat
1 oz. Model Masters Clear Flat Finish (sku4636)

The #99 Speedball pen tip is equivalent to the #56 listed in post #1

The Model Masters Clear Flat Finish replaces the 1/2 oz. Floquil which was discontinued. The price increase reflects the additional cost of the Model Masters and shipping from an additional source.

Cost to the United States is $30

Cost to all others is $32

If you find interesting electronic components in your travels and have some to share, I will barter.
Would $32 include shipping cost to India?

And can I order for 3 oz. each of Microscale MI-4 Gloss coat and Model Masters Clear Flat Finish (sku4636) because I have plenty of speakers to Enabl but I won't need the pen and nibs to be repeated. In this case, what would be the cost? Thanks.

A standard kit for $32 does include shipping. Adding more finish to the package will increase the weight. There would be a small upcharge for that.

You may order as much as you wish. Please understand the recent change to Model Masters Clear Flat Finish is an increase in quantity of 100% over what was being offered. This was driven by product packaging and availability, not need. Add to this the material is thinned with additional water to improve flow.

How many drivers do you anticipate treating? The acrylic may be split among several containers to preserve the "original" constitution and allow tempering to obtain a suitable consistency.

I don't think I have EnABL'd a great number of drivers. So, I'm still working from my original 1/2 ounce container, with enough material left for treating more drivers than I could ever imagine.

Sam will have pm.

I find that small paint containers like those pictured really help things out. They are cheap (of these i had to buy one -- it was $1.25 at the dollar store and came with glitter paint).

A container of pollyscale will do at least a 100 of 4" drivers and proportionally fewer large drivers. And that is even when you consider that the majority gets on the paper towels as you clean things and the inevitable splillage (the little containers help there as you only spill part of a bottle)

You will go thru gloss a lot faster.

I presently have 22 Nos. 6 1/2" drivers, 20 Nos. 1" Dome Tweeters, 2 Nos. Ribbons, 12 Nos. 15" Drivers, 12 Nos. 12" Drivers and there are more to come. Will the standard kit with 1 additional unit of gloss do for the present drivers that I have? Can I pay by Credit Card (Visa)? Thanks.
