The workman is worthy of his wages.

If you wish to make no money from it, add cost of materials plus shipping and charge that.  Add a bit also to cover consumables and equipment.  No shame in that at all.

Hello Coco friends

      I am writing to you today to announce  a price change
for my converters.    I have decided to lower the price  to
$50 for both the board level unit and the one with an
enclosure.   The cost to produce them is over $100 but that
is a totally unacceptable price since you can get single
board computers for less than that.   So I have dropped
the price to something more reasonable.   Something
I would pay if it were me buying the product.

   The only reason I have to sell below cost is that  commercial
units are made by the gross using "pick and place" machines
while mine are hand made.  They buy components in bulk
while I buy small quantities at a time.

  My main motivation is not to make money anyway but to
insure our beloved machine continues deep into this century.

   I enjoy making the units anyway.   It's sort  of like woodworking
or painting pictures.   It relieves stress and gives me a sense  of

  I have suspended production for the time being till my  financial
position settles down due to my recent retirement.   When  that
happens I will begin to assemble them once again.and fill orders.
