SIO sockets bulk order

Recommended Posts

Is anyone interested in making a bulk order for SIO sockets with me? I need some for the EclaireXL but not so many to bring the price down to a level I'm happy with. i.e. at 50 the price is completely dominated by setup costs.

 

I'd like to order about 50 but we'll need ideally at least 200 (~$8 each) or better 300 (~$7 each) to make the price reasonable. Excluding tax and shipping.

 

Is anyone interested in joining me in this? I'm talking about quantities >50 each otherwise it'll be too fiddly to deal with.

Setup costs seem to imply injection molding. Or just 3D printing? @Sikor is planning on doing something similar in November/December with proper injection molding. Perhaps you two could figure out something toghether?

Yes, I will do them. They should be available in November or December probably. They are slowly getting drawn, and for the time being I am looking around for the manufacturer of pins.

Have you made contact with Atari dealers such as Best, B&C, etc.? They may be interested in a bulk order.

Just because my OCD makes me want to collect "all the things", I'd buy at least a dozen or two even though I don't have an immediate need for them.

For now I search for proper pins for it.

Maybe his solution has the these pins, if he ever had found the right ones.

Some details:

If you'd like some or want more details please PM me. Minimum 50 and ideally in lots of 50. Of course if someone wants to collect the orders of 10 and handle orders of 50 that'd be great. I don't want to be shipping lots of small packages.

@larryleffaovell: no, there are good for 3D print, not for IM forming ones

@foft: I don't see offer for SIO connectors. They on picture looks ok, but probably SIO pins are made from wire - can You ask for pictures from front with pins inside?

Beat me to it. As you can see, solid and proper pins. I think they do need cutting off after soldering.

 

Regarding 'offer', these are not generally on sale. i.e. the goal is not to be in the connector business, its a one off special order which I have discussed.

Looks more then ok. So, I don't know, that I can do this type of connector or not?  If there any more info at atarimax page about this product?

Oh, ok. So i'll made it. But this is very good, as i see. Good job!

Ok, I have rendered one - now I test it and in future will be IM new SIO jacs from me.

Will the color be white or black?

Mayen ABBUC is interested in a lot for its members?

That would be the way I'd have to go, as I'd like some, but only half a dozen or so. I'll go in with 4 others for 10 each if anyone is interested.

I would be in for 5. 

 

Should we get a list going?

Yes - I love lists.  I am on (not being sarcastic) I think 5 just on Atari Age.  It's like Christmas year round when orders get fulfilled :)

5 would be better for me, but I'm willing to buy as many as 10 if need be.

Order placed. Could someone please offer to handle sending them on in the us? Wouldn’t make sense for me to send them from here.
