    Rangefinder circuit interest thread

    Since I entered the JB project as a supplier of the rf circuit, I received a bit of interest of doing them for the public(quite a bit actually) I am trying to juggle life projects, but am now getting close to doing this. I am going to be ordering parts within the week, to be able to build some boards. As it is right now, I will be offering 2 versions of the board-

    1) with battery source built in to the board, just drop in to the hollow rangefinder
    2) with no battery source, you would run the supplied wires down your hollow stalk and connect a 9V(not included) and mount it how you want inside your bucket. This would be for more advanced users I guess, who want the benefit from 9V battery(longer life, cheaper battery, slightly brighter LED's) I would offer this version at a discounted rate.

    Now this is not a sign up thread(yet) nor a committment thread(yet). I am merely looking for interest, just to see what I'm in for, and see how long the parts I am ordering will last Pictures can be seen in my JB project thread-
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=23806

    I will also get measurements of the board up soon, so you will know if it will fit in your topper.

    Re: Rangefinder circuit interest thread

    Interested since I saw your thread.

    Depending on price, I'll probably try both to see which one I like best.

    Offcourse the wire down to the helmet is the accurate one.

    Thanks

    Re: Rangefinder circuit interest thread

    Thanks guys. I am waiting to get the part in and roll a few out to develop a firm price. I know that a few members have done these in the past. In the interest of fairness and not undercutting anyone, I will be putting the price in the same range. Let's say a not to exceed $50-60, little less for the "supply your own 9V version". How does this sound to the masses?
