[MB-6582 related] PT-10 box Europe Bulk Order Thread

44 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I'm pretty sure that at least half of you have seen a new hope, something like a sunrise warming their cold skin; waking them out of their pcbs wintering.

And by this, as many have understand, i mean THE MAIL...!

Well so i was reviewing what was missing in my "mb-6582 parts and stuff.." drawer:

a PT-10 box !!!

I don't know already where to buy it, i don't know how it will cost, as you might understand i know nothing...

I just want to know if there are people out there who need a PT-10 box for their project.

I've never run a bulk order before, but there's always a start so why not now !!

So, if you agree, let's figure out together the "wheres and how muches" :)

Sorry if i'm taking liberties with the english language, i'm french!!

i'll be more concise in my next posts, i promiss.

Let me hear your thoughs on this subject!!

I need one too and would be glad to participate in a bulk order. I don't know of a better source than Mouser though, I hope there is though. What about switches, encoders and lcd?

I did the Euro bulk buy last time.

I got them from ACAL in the UK. Their on-line buying system seems to have changed since last year, however. http://www.acaltechnology.com/index.php

One thing I think worth mentioning is to try and get a multiple of the standard box quantity, (about 18), because, if not well packed, they tend to scratch each other in transit - I had to get some replaced, which took time. The manufacturers box is very sturdy and keeps the boxes from touching each other .

I ended up getting them with panels in the end, because ACAL did not charge carriage in the UK, and Pactec did, so The UK deal worked out a bit cheaper, especially when one considered the Customs fees. Digikey seem to have the best delivery system with regard to paying the VAT from abroad, for me - you just pay the actual amount to the driver. Mouser use Fedex; you will gat a VAT and Customs bill through the post after dleivery, so don't go doing the final accounts until you have it. In the UK, avoid anyone that uses Parcelforce as their final carrier, if you can: they add a usurious £13.50 'clearence fee' to the customs and VAT invoice. On a truckload of parts it's not bad, on a small parts order it's nasty!

Hope this is of help.

Thanks Kart for the kind words, I was so mad at myself since it was my favorite part of my MB, just one moment of carelessness...

does anyone know if there is a supplier in Canada for the PT-10?

I need about 5 myself and would rather not have them come across the boarder.

Sorry about hijacking the thread BTW..

The Italian deal seems very interesting,if we could make a group buy for at least 25, they would cost about 15 eus each (w/o shipping)...yay!

We might be able to reach 25. We should set up a wiki page to gather the forces! I just don't have time today... Working.

i would take 2 or 3, for that matter. 25 seems fairly easy aim.

anybody from inside italy, can give a hint about shipping prices, even by sea, to israel?

1         £12.71  15,75 EU

6         £11.78  14,60 EU

15         £11.35  14,07 EU

25         £9.35    11,59 EU

50         £8.82    11,56 EU

That is a fantastic price! We surely would be able to hit 25 - at least.

We need to get a wiki up as soon as some generous guy volunteers to manage the bulk order.

Hi dioioib, here is something for you....

http://www.alliedelec.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?SKU=508-2674&MPN=PT-10-000-K&R=508-2674&SEARCH=508-2674&DESC=PT-10-000-K?utm_source=Allied&utm_medium=merchandising&utm_campaign=Allied_Top_Sellers&utm_content=508-2674

For non italian people I suggest to browse the rs components worldwide webpage and find a local partner of it

http://www.rs-components.com/index.html

Unfortunately shipment outside Italy of items like pactec pt-10 seems to be not cheap.

Greets,

Polpat

Yesss!

Buying one here on my own would cost me exactly twice the price, I need 2...It makes 20eu difference.
