    Has anyone thought about putting a link to the ebay page into Reddit? It might be a great way to getting a large amount of exposure quickly. I haven't posted it yet because I thought I would clear it with you guys first.

    Thank you KayinBlack.

    My only observation is that my first Social Security check doesn't arrive until June 27th. I haven't worked at all this year.

    People like to think they are getting more than they are paying for, so listing the retail value of all components would be a good thing.

    I meant on the auction itself. I try to itemize things like cell phones and the accessories so that it 'inflates' the perceived value, this allows me to usually sell at the price point i want. That and having 387 100% positive doesnt hurt lol.

    I would normally charge $20 to put together the PCB (I can do surface mount here,) attach it in place of the old one (the fiddly part) and then exhaustively test (I don't let a pump go without 4-6 hours of PWM test on a board, that one was my own for Knight's Rest) so if you're gonna look at itemizing, it's pump+PCB+labor, and I'm sure you retailed that for what you needed as well, DB.

    If we get into itemizing, it could get ugly. I think the way it's done is fine. DB, if you want one just get me a DDC-1, I have a PCB here I'll do it with, and just ship it to you when I'm done, as a thanks for helping John. You seemed to like it so much, and I need a different PCB for what I have, may as well make someone happy with it.

    Well, I'm all about sharing the love. My own project moves rather slowly, but at least it's moving. Besides, I'm in a position to thank him for his willingness to help, and it seemed like he was interested in the pump. Soldering stuff like that keeps me decent with an iron.

    If you need a pump for your project, I can do the same. I'm looking for a cheap source of DDC-1s, when I find a steady source I'll probably offer them to the community.

    I just submitted the link to ShutUpAndTakeMyMoney on Reddit. If you have a Reddit account, please upvote the post, as it means that it will be more visible to rest of the community.

    I am glad that I could help. Even in such a small way.
