For readers of the old thread: I'm adding $60 to my cost (deduct $60 from total cost for all chassis) as if I was also paying for delivery from Utah, as all others must pay. This change makes the overall buy more equitable than earlier accounting where I saved this second shipping fee other were stuck paying.

Group buy selling for my/our actual cost, MOQ (minimum order quantity) 20.
This thread is only to post quantity desired. TrungT already made the CAD file (thanks TrungT) so please don't confuse this issue with any voting or suggestions, please.

I'll request funds when we get to MOQ of 20.
Cost details for CNC precut chassis model RE2207 from Mike @ Silicon Ray in China. 20 chassis ship from China to me in Utah, then I ship immediately after arrival from Utah.
Shipping each to me $15 (group buy discounted from $20)
$64 x 20 = $1280 subtotal
James Romeyn pays <$60> as if his 6 chassis shipped from Utah, $1220 subtotal
One time SR $10 handling fee = $1230/20 = 61.50 ea
Add $10ea SR CNC cutting fee $71.50 ea
Add shipping from me to you, discounted Endicia commercial 3rd party account via USPS Parcel Post, 4 or 5 lbs, estimate $15ea $86.50, $173/pr (this is not your actual final cost...rather than $15 estimate as above you'll pay me the amount printed on your shipping label which you'll confirm upon arrival...example: I confirmed 4 lbs to Florida = $12.88)
Add 3% Paypal. Sorry I have Premier account. This is not a gift. Also if delivered to Utah add sales tax due. I'm licensed, but actually tax is due whether you're licensed or not but that's another story. The entire group would have to wait for a check to clear which is obviously impractical (even cashier's check will take several days out of state).
Note, if you purchase direct yourself: No free CAD design, no $10 discounted CNC fee, no $5 discount per chassis shipping (see above) add $10-15 handling fee per order (only one time in this group buy), no credit $5 per black faceplate (credited for this Group Buy). These discounts appear to more than cover our extra shipping fee from Utah.
I'll ship via Endicia USPS Parcel Post, with 100% successful safe delivery record for our guitar accessory (hundreds shipped).
Please correct math if necessary.
Chassis is black. Specify silver or black faceplate. Black normally +$5 but no up-charge for this group buy.
I saw your post on audio circle. I think you should also mention that the custom laser engraving diagram is available now! everyone can have their own design on it. The laser engraving looks awesome on black anodized aluminum! Logo engraving is $10 each.
See the photo I attached, you can post it on the GB thread.
Etching requires Coreldraw cdr file, 1:1 scale.
No power switch. Hypex SMPS600 is already fused.
IEC: Parts Express
XLR: Neutrik female chassis mount, gold or silver contacts
Binding post holes: 10mm cut for Apex Jr. $4.59/pr short gold post with large bare wire hole (Apex said he has about 300)...if your preferred post requires smaller than 10mm hole you need a bushing/washer/spacer, if larger you must open the hole larger yourself. Apex Jr posts:
My "lovely" pencil/graph paper diagrams, both to scale. Chassis dimensions not identical because base is ID, rear panel is OD.
Holler if you find an error or discrepancy.
The post hole centers match the IEC fasteners. Plus my fingertips are so big I can't even play a regular guitar neck, so I like the extra spacing. Clearance to the mounting surface should be fine with your favorite footers.
BTW, I realize, if the NC400 moved upward a few mm there would be better clearance for two amps/one ps, but its really just a mono design and frankly, Scarlet, at this point, I really don't give a darn....
For optimistic free lunch crowd, this is for chassis only and nothing else.
