So thats 9mmx9mm? Whats the actual difference in current transmision if compared to ordinary springs/copper braided?

I'm in for at least 50. More if needed to get this above the 500 mark. We've tried this a few times and never seem to be able to get enough interest, despite these springs being awesome. Copper braiding works, but it looks horrible.

Depends on timing and packaging.  I'd want a small flat rate box.

The low mode should be lower.

In for probably 10, depending on shipping prices.

 i can ship alot in a priority box for $5.00 in the US, or i was thinking to send one package to a well known person in your guys country that can RE-SHIP cheaper, any thoughts on that ?

and if anyone orders under 15 i can ship in a envelope that's taped around it for what a stamp or 2 cost

I am glad that someone tries to make this come true again. :bigsmile:

From my experience Shipping to me in a bubble mailer is around 7$ For a untracked envelope.
The springs are also not very cheap but with shipping for a small quantity it is a dealbreaker which make the springs double the price. So the idea of one bigger order to a country which than gets distributed is probably the only reasonable way for a small private use of the springs.

What is with these springs convoy uses? I guess they are cheap.
Has anyone compared them to these berylliumfancysprings?

I my self have not tested any but from what i read they are the best to use on applications over 4+amps, if anyone would like to be my re-shipper in your guys country just post and will go from there when this gets off the ground, but everyone does not need to use the RE-shipper if they dont want to

If this really gets going I'd be in for 20, 9x9mm and that shape sounds very versatile to me. I could do Europe reshipping but I am afraid the dutch post is relatively expensive, and a Germany based member would make more sense.

edit: it looks like I can send it as a letter (max 20 grams, 3.2cm thick), it is 1.05 euro worldwide. But I guess that if nitro can send it as a letter too, it should not be too expensive to send it directly.

I went to USPS.com and selected the calculator and typed in my zip code 43452 and entered Zeremefico location (Greece) and entered Letter @ 0.0440925 = 20 Grams and it says $1.15 ??

I’ll ask around the Korean forums and see if other modders are interested.

Nitro, no offense intended but please make sure the shipping and packaging costs are actually used for shipping and packaging. Many of us received damaged or missing SinkPads because the sorting machines ripped the envelopes open. Also, if you could follow through your orders completely without disappearing for weeks, that would be great!

ill make sure it will go smoother, just to say i did not disappear for just that reason doing a GB is harder than just collecting funds and packing and shipping ect......(and i believe everyone got a refund/order re-shipped?)

but i still would like to have few RE-shippers for each country so that does not happen again and we all can pitch in for somewhat tracking to them ?

and for the US buyers it will be mailed in a Priority box so that way everyone has a tracking number UNLESS u want it shipped cheap ?

I’d be in for 20-25, as long as shipping isn’t more than 1/4 the total cost

It would be interesting if someone could compare the resistance of these to the ones from FT. Relic noted that they might be a beryllium alternative and delivered low resistance with good performance. Post 52.

All the specs on the springs please?

OAL, Wire Diameter, Base diameter, Top diameter, Temperature range before spring tension is lost, Compression rate, (how many pounds of force to compress the spring). 

I would be in for 50 to 100 if the specs come out good. I don't want a spring that compresses easily or looses it's spring when soldered, as beryllium does sometimes.
