LOL! YOU MUST BY MORE CHIPS. MANY YEAR TO COME FOR PROJECT.
I just got a response from Kevin.
I received a reply from the last supplier I was waiting on. I am able to get more N.O.S. parts and offer the same pricing that is listed on my website. I can't offer any further discount, but you can buy as many as you want (50pcs, 100pcs, 200pcs, etc) for $3.99 each. Therefore, please let me know if you would like the 50pcs right now, or if you would like to wait for aproximately 2-3 weeks for me to receive additional quantities, and then send everything together.
So! the price is a little higher than originally quoted, but on quantities, the sky's the limit. At $3.99 each + $.42 PayPal fees, the cost per chip would be $4.41 USD or 2.94 Euro or 2.30 GBP or 4.95 AUD. Not sure on shipping, I need to study Wilba's shipping methods to make sure I keep that cost low. I'll cover the cost of the padded envelopes, I can get them cheap at the wholesale market (or five finger discount at the office).
I'll set up a MINI-SALE WIKI page tonight or tomorrow to see how much interest we have! I know there's a bunch of midiboxers with C64 keyboards laying around just waiting to hook up to a Lemonhorse AY-3-8912 Synth!
