packaging of the plate:

first some saran wrap to avoid finger prints upon arrival

then in a bubblewrap envelope

now its a priority box with some peanuts

some more peanuts on top then closing of the box.


it left my hands this way and should arrive into gir's this way

quick question.. in all honesty, how much would you guys pay for a bracket like this?

What is the total cost of materials only? IE: cost of the brass to make one bracket, buffing stuff, etc etc.
post #194 of 228
3'x4" of brass = $63 so 4'x4" = $7
Polish cost me $15 for 4oz. (no way i used all of it.. but not sure how much i used..)
sand paper = $0.50/sheet 6x = $3

so just materials... i would say between $10-13.

Well now it's only an equation of how much time it took and how much your time is worth to you. I'd say maybe 18-20 + shipping?
post #196 of 228
haha oh yea, shipping. if i ship it how i shipped it to you.. thats 7.60 in shipping.

so materials + shipping = $17.60-20.60

though i'm thinking thats already quite high for some people. thats not even factoring in how much time spent.. i'd say around 1-2 hours.. 3 hours max but i really doubt it even got that long.

oh my... i better get back to the post office then.


i'm starting on a different bracket already as for what it'll be for, i have no clue right now. i'll keep this thread updated with my progress. i have to say taht this new degisn will work only for LGA775 though. it's a more round look. i think this would work great on say a XSPC Delta or of the sort.

UPDATE: i've already cut out the bracket and the general shape. going to take the jigsaw to town on it to get a better shape. if you guys don't like this desgin, i'll just use it for one of my loops. i need to get rid of that aluminum one anyhow.

Considering shipping/materials/work, around 25 or so would be fair. Maybe even a little more. It looks really nice, especially with the brass. Not many people can say they have as nice of a bracket as this one. Just my two cents.
