    On my way to the PO with five HUGE jiffy bags each containing approximately 550g of keycaps. I hope you all get your keycaps tomorrow. Still waiting to hear from TheDodoKiller for his address! :thumb:

    Just had another look.

    Shame on you for not being psychic and posting the delivery cost before knowing where it may get shipped to! :hehe:

    Now a guy in the hate thread wants to know why you decided on an auction? Um, to get the best price for your goods. This really is all about people wanting a CC but being priced out of the bidding. I want an Audi RS6, but I'm damned if I can find one for £17.50!

    Yep, I remember all the complaints when prices were hidden in pm and the mob called for open auctions and transparency.

    As for rouge, look at his profile...
    He's an 18 year old from Guernsey. I don't think you are the object of his asshattery LW, but you can't stop his allowance like daddy can. He sounds like he's on a tree hugging, share the wealth campaign like so many muppets that think they have lived but have no clue how the world works or what 'fair' really means... Probably read a copy of the daily mail or something... Bloody yoghurt fanciers..

    Same ****, different day.

    Hi, I'd like to pay $80 for a single keycap, however I don't know how I feel about paying $17 to make sure it get's to me.

    I find it interesting that girldc caps go for $150 minimum, more for non Ironman ones but noone ever raises complaint there.

    Ahhh, but... Stirling silver; precious metal rather than plastic and that makes all the difference... HA!

    ABS around £20/kg
    Silver (bullion, today) £558.358/KG

    ABS cap ≈ £0.02
    Silver cap ≈ £5 - £10

    As ever, the bulk of the cost is in the craftsmanship.

    I won't be doing limited run caps as a rule - it's just not how I do things. However, I will be doing single/limited run keys on commission as a bespoke manufacturer - as I already do with jewellery.

    Geekhack makes me appreciate this thread and the people in it. You guys have really been the only people on GH that I've actually ever liked. Snide ****s.
