'[BUY] Two fairly simple kits'

face picon face


I've had it with the current supplier of some add on kits that I have had
good luck reselling along with the excellent Linistepper drivers made by
Roman Black. Roman doesn't appear to be interested in expanding the line of
kits he makes, so I'm looking for another supplier.

Do you know anyone who could provide a kit like this at a reasonable cost:
http://www.piclist.com/techref/io/stepper/linistep/4axisbuild.htm or this
timer kit from the same supplier:
http://www.piclist.com/techref/555kitbuild.htm

I will purchase in quantities of 50 or more and pay half in advance, half on
delivery (preferably by PayPal). Out of respect for the original designer, I
will not supply a copy of the kit, but developing a better replacement
should not be difficult. On the 4 Axis kit, for example, I would like to see
jumpers that allow you to set the mode the linisteppers will run in. If
needed, I can turn out gerbers for the PCB. It isn't about design, it's
about the mind numbingly boring job of putting parts in little bags, packing
them up and shipping them, over and over again. Quickly, reliably,
accurately.

I would much rather do this with a small shop rather than a large,
established business. Why? Because A) I've been screwed over by two many
large businesses and B) I'm in the same boat. I currently re-sell little
items from several PICListers, all small shops, all good people, all happy
with me (I believe?) and I'm very happy with them. The supplier I'm having
trouble with is not a PICLister, not a small shop. He takes over a month to
ship each time, and last time left out the cables on better than half the
kits.

It isn't hard to run a business, I think. You just have to find a customer,
charge a fair price, and then DO what you said you would in a reasonable
time.

Anyway, if you are interested, email me off list. If you know someone,
please pass this on to them.

There are companies that specialize in putting together kits.  Generally
they are kits for manufacture, but they will also produce individual kits
for resell.  It's not clear if you are asking for them to do fulfillment
also.  That would be a lot harder to find, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Check out ATX in Peabody MA, (978) 531-2226, ask for Ted and tell him I sent
you.  He's a good guy, but he'll talk your ear off if you let him.

Do they also sell their stuff directly?  If so, how do you take a markup
without the original supplier competing against you?  I guess you are doing
the sales and fulfillment.  What kind of a markup do you charge for that?
Would you be interested in selling EasyProg kits or in other forms?  What
about the new USBProg USB PIC programmer coming Real Soon Now (tm)?  There's
a sneak preview at http://www.embedinc.com/products/eusb2.jpg.  The
programmer part is working very well from RS-232.  The USB driver and
accompanying additions to the host software are still being worked on.
