'[AD:] Multiple auctions of Electronic Components o'

Hello,

My students are running some ebay auctions to raise money for their
Underwater ROV they are building.  Over the next couple of months we will
be running auctions as we are able to get the items together.  Currently
there are over 20 different items up there.  Later on, we will have a bunch
of Heath Hero robots and components up there.

Little bit about the ROV, it is 18" w x 18" h x 24" L, it will have five
thrusters, each controlled by a PIC.  The ROV controller will be PIC based
as will the surface controller.  The system will be running on 48V and have
a current limit of 40 amps.  Multiple low light color cameras, a killer
gripper, distance measurement, temperature and depth measurement and a few
other goodies.  For info on the ROV competition, check
out  http://www.marinetech.org

All the auctions can be found at

Thanks

       Too bad you only ship to the states. Considering the wide variety of people
on this list you've drastically reduced your potential audience. Too bad.

Herbert,

Sorry about that.  I normally would have no problem's with it, but with all
the rules we have to follow at the college just to run the auction, adding
the customs and international shipping is a bit more than they are ready to
handle right now.  If you have suggestions on methods to handle
international transactions easily, I'll start to work on them for the
future auctions and see if I can get the limitation lifted.  I'll at least
give it a try before all the rest of the stuff goes up on auction.  There
is so much stuff, our auctions will be going on until at least June.

Thanks
Scott

For international, USPS shipping only. Payment by international money order
in US dollars only (unless you want to take Paypal). Bidpay might work
well, I just got a payment from a Latvian buyer- it comes in the form
of a locally mailed Western Union money order. Specify that recipient
is responsible for any customs charges from their own country, and that
your responsibility ends when you hand it to the post office (that allows
cheaper shipping), with insurance optional.

Someone will have to take the box to the post office and fill out a
form (the little green sticker or a longer one with basically the same
information) that says what the stuff is, and what it's worth (what was
paid for it, not including shipping). Takes about 30 seconds. If you're
shipping via mail anyway, post 911, it's not that much different, AFAIUI.

International orders have the advantage that you don't have to worry about
collecting sales tax depending on where the buyer is. ;-)

       Shipping to international destinations is no more complicated for the
shipper then shipping locally, except you have to fill out a customs slip (1
line declaring what's in the box) and sign it (which all takes about 30
seconds). The added complications are for the receivers, but that isn't
anything you have to worry about. TTYL

you can't fool me!  you're just getting the students to clean up
junk that's collected over the years, that you think you'll probably
never use anyway!

Well......
In truth all THIS stuff was donated to the club by three different people,
one who was retiring (wife after him to clean up), a company that after 30+
years, sold off part of the company and donated a bunch to us and finally
the motors came to us by way of a company that purchased them for a project
and the project was cancelled.

The school collected "junk" auctions will start next :-).   There is SO
much stuff there it boggles the mind.  An old Halicrafters receiver,
bunches and bunches of old microwave test equipment, all the Heath Robots,
and the list goes on and on.

If we were to have disposed of the stuff, the normal way, it would have
gone to the warehouse, set outside due to lack of space, gotten rained on
and instantly become a molded muck of worthless parts who's only redeeming
value would have been to melt down to scrap metal.

That would have been a shame as much of the stuff still operates and has
useful life/value to it.

Been there.  Picked stuff off the piles; still have it.  It's quite sad.
At work we have electronic scrap bins that go off to surplus dealers
that
at least extract the gold (I believe part of the agreement is that no
actual cisco boards/equipment reach anywhere in working condition.)  The
piles of (almost?) perfectly working 486 and Pentium-1 PCs that are
"cleaned up" are particularly depressing, but with used modern PIII and
GHz+ Celerons selling at about $100 and new systems at $300, the sort of
person who can't afford a modern PC is exactly the sort of person that
SHOULDN'T be saddled with an ancient machine. ("you could run linux in
command line mode.  Would that help?"  Sigh.)
