Just wondering something:
I've seen a couple of other mfr's for chest lights lately, and they've received pretty long lists of interested buyers. The set I designed has been around for nearly 3 years now, and I still get the occasional e-mail/PM asking for help to build them (since I offered up the schematics for DIYers), as well as questions about ordering a set from me. Honestly, with the creation of the new light sets from others, I figured demand for mine would die down to the point where I couldn't justify having more boards etched.
Now, the question is this ... are there enough people still interested in the "ShackMan chest lights" to do another batch run? I dropped the price to $90 plus shipping a while back, to finish off the few boards I had left. Now that I'm down to one or two boards, I've been receiving e-mails about them again. If I did a bulk run, and offered them for say $80 + shipping, how many would be interested? Again, this is to gauge interest only. Due to unemployment, I can't front money for parts or board manufacturing like I used to. I'm just checking to see if there are enough interested in "this old set" (at a reduced price) to justify having more made.
P.S. Special thanks to all those who have purchased the lights over the past 3 years! Until you design/sell a part, you can't describe the feeling of seeing your work being displayed by others (such as at cons).
