      Description: Hello folks, it's been a little while.


      From time to time the topic comes up about doing another group buy on these cam timing tools. Last one was back in 2011 so it's probably overdue for another attempt.


      In the past I did these at cost but it was a total nightmare. Trying to nail the exact price and correctly estimate taxes, shipping, PP fees, etc... It sucked. Looking at records from the previous GB I see I had to go back and ask for multiple payments. In the end I actually lost about $200 in the last GB.
      So full disclosure I'm going to pad the price a little to ensure expenses are covered and if there is any profit I'll figure out a way to donate it back to the community. These GBs have always been done at cost and I intend to keep it that way.


      We can do this anyway you want. Just the tool, the entire kit, or partial. I have 1 quote so far to make another batch (waiting on 2 others) but it looks like a full kit would be well under $450 all in if we can get 30 or more people to commit. Here is a very rough preliminary breakdown:


      $210 Just the tool
      $150 2x Fowler digital dial indicators
      $25 1x degree wheel
      $20 2x Mitotuyo 2" needle style contact points


      Add in shipping, PP fees, taxes etc... and we should be able to keep it under $450 (unless it's being shipped outside the US).


      One picture is of an old prototype just to show how it fits onto the cam box.


      I've made some minor updates to the design since the last GB but only to provide greater adjustability. This is now officially version 5. LOL


      Please let me know if you're interested and prepared to commit. Like I said we need 30 or more to get those prices but worst case scenario, if we get only get 10 the tool price would increase by $60.


      Thanks for looking.

    So far we have 13 folks on board.  Tool price is currently $248 (plus tax & shipping) at those numbers unless we can find 7 more to get on board which gets us to the next price break ($200).  Basically, 7 more people saves everybody almost $48.

    We have 19 on board now, I can order one extra to get us to the first price break. I don't think we'll get to 30 but there's been a bit of a surge recently. I'm going to give it a few more days and then lock down an order with the machine shop.
