I've been waiting for you to resume building these so I could get two more, because they are very good. I will pay full price. Lowering your price so far below cost will likely result in a much higher demand, costing you too much and possibly force you to stop altogether. That would be sad. Benevolence is not a bad thing, but you shouldn't sacrifice to do so. Keep up the good work & I hope that you enjoy retirement!
