So how much for mosfet files, controller PCB's & processor together ? I sent email but no answer :(
Fritz, Are you going to be selling the mosfet board?
Brian, not at this moment. Maybe later if things pick up.
Hi Fritz, I know that you put a lot of time and money into this project I've been following this blog for a while. I'm also learning along the way. I'm pretty sure when you make the board and processor available for purchase it will all worth your time. I already purchase the Mosfet files and waiting for the control board. I noticed that you post prices in a responds but no link to purchase. Regards.
Damian, some very nice guys, gave me donations, that I used to get things going and I promised them that I would make the boards available to them first. I'm also doing it kind of slow because to package these boards and to get them shipped takes up a lot of my time. I am trying to speed the process up.
I guest I didn't make the nice guy list, even after purchasing the mosfet files for $25
Damian, if you want to build this welder, then you need the mosfet files no matter what. Don't make it more difficult for me than it already is, please. I'm getting forced to go back and change things that I said because I don't have the time to write 10 emails (I'm not kidding) when I ship a board because the person wants his $5 discount. I lowered the mosfet files price to $20 and from now on that is going to be the price.
Damn guys!! cut him some slack. If it wasnt for him you would not even have the option to buy this so be patient before he gets burned out and just walks away from the whole project. I dont think making smart ass comments makes him work faster.
Fritz I didn't expect you to take offends to my comment and I hope you didn't. As far as Tim's comment, I wasn't trying to rush Fritz in any way. What smart ass comment? its called a little humor, that's if you have any. Lighten up.
Yours was just one of many posts lately (that could easily be taken as a negative even if meant in jest)and from the sound of it Fritz doesnt have much humor left in him because of it.
Hey Guys, I'm not mad and you did not offend me Damian, I was just trying to explain. I'm actually a very patient guy. I have a lot of shipping boxes coming and I also placed a new order for more Micro-processors. I will try and get as many boxes as possible ready for shipment this weekend and post it on here when they are ready.
I just purchased the mosfet files. Sorry I was dragging my feet.I think the case Shawn is offering would be awesome for around $100. When you consider the time spent modifying a case - any type of case to fit a project and make it look good - $100 is totally worth it.Keep up the good work Fritz. Don't let people pressure you into doing more than you can handle - just take it one day at a time and things will get done. Considering you've put so much time and effort into this project anyone who wants to support you and show their appreciation should make the purchases you have available.
Hey gang. I just got done installing a new cap in my welder along with a new weld lead set. Wow! what a difference. This welder is absolutely AWESOME! For those of you interested in the boxes I should have them avaliable in about three weeks (give or take) if you can wait that long. I'll take down everybodys email and contact you when I'm getting ready to cut. The boxes will look like whats in the pics Fritz has posted. I dont mind changing around some of the box cut out holes to suite your hardware. What a kick ass welder!! Thanks Fritz!!Shawn
Shawn: Tell us about the lead set. You bought them or made them? Where or how? -Mike
Hey Fritz, I've got money burning a hole in my pocket as soon as your boards are available. Don't despair, your work is appreciated!
Hello.My name is Peter, I'm Polish - came up to you.The layout is great, I really want to build it. It will be a jewel in my garage.Do you still can buy the PCB?Yours sincerely
Peter, I am not selling any boards at this time because I am working on a pulse arc add on for this welder and also making a small change to the Mosfet board. I might make it available at a later stage if enough people are interested.
Hello Fritz, I have been following this project for a long time (since endless sphere) and have been waiting for just the right time. Your work on this project is like fine wine: the longer it goes the better it gets - How do I go about getting my name on the list for the next iteration? I would like 2 please. Thank you.Sincerely,Matt K.
Matt, I'm working on the Pulse arc add on at the moment and I'm not sure how things will work out but I MIGHT just make everything available to download. That will include the schematics, Gerber files, manuals, BOM's, Processor Hex files etc.I'm not selling any PCB's at the moment and I don't think that I'm going to anymore.
Wow Fritz that would be so cool... and I promise not to hesitate. I have the capability to mill my own circuit boards so you wont have to make another order should I happen to be the only one.I shall continue to lurk here or email me whichever is most convenient for you.Thanks,Matt K.
Dear Sir,Please let us know if the plans for the complete project are available. Or where to get all the spares like pcb.
Hi Fritz, when you'll reopen selling boards for this welder don't forget and please send me a notice. My mailbox is firstname.lastname@example.orgWith Respect,MAX
