Thanks, Samo - I wanted to WOW you!

 [big grin]

Yes, it *IS* a bunch of work. Not likely that I will do a second run, and certainly not at this price. That said, if you missed it there just MIGHT be one more chance. Check back at the end of the week for more info...

Definitely interested as well if there's another chance!  Had intended on getting in on the order, got busy and was away from the 'net for a couple days and found I had missed the deadline.

I have been looking all over for one of these but I'm a day late and a dollar short.  But if a second chance purchase is available I too would definitely want to purchase ASAP I will check back daily

Great job WOW, look forward to their arrival, it has been real hard since you started this project avoiding the need for first aid but summer is finally here and the tools used now usually will require some form of first aid more often.

BTW, I was surprised that no one commented about my video editing skills (or lack thereof) or my choice of music. I at least expected a snide comment from you, Kev? Or perhaps you're not reading this thread because all of the contents would fall out for you when you opened the lid, due to being on the negative gravity side of the planet?

The video was funny. Reminds me of that freakin' commercial a couple of years ago :).  You know....only with the insinuation of impending blood and gore and bandages :D

Jon:

Then you will be happy to know that I added toe bandages to the kit! And no, it wasn't prompted by your injury as I've had them for a few weeks now.

Dropped a half sheet of Mdf on it.  BOOM!  Not a fun way to end a Friday, especially when the tools need to find their way back into my truck.  Luckily I had a small first aid kit and for some odd reason I had an extra pair of socks in my truck.  Bled through the one pair so bad it was coming through my shoe.

I'm not one to go to the ER, I mean, ok, my toe is smashed.  Get an x ray, have a doctor look at it...to tell me my toe is smashed!  But the pain...

Wow, I know they'll be awesome.  Please don't feel pressured by this post.  Thanks for doing it right, and I really can't wait.

Speaking of attention to detail, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures. Here's how the latches were packaged for me, even though I only live about 5 miles from the printer:

108886-0

In case you can't see it, each latch is in it's own plastic bag to prevent any scuffing. Thease guys are GOOD!

I spent most of the day yesterday and today picking up and reassembling the Systainers. If you liked the last post of all of the systainers, you're gonna LOVE this one:

108896-1

And a bit of a close-up:

108898-2

I'll stop teasing you now.

I thought I'd post a few pictures to help you get a sense of the magnitude of what I need to accomplish in the next few days. I had the deliveries managed so I didn't have to stubble around boxes until the last minute. Today UPS delivered 19 boxes of First Aid supplies. Yes, I said NINETEEN boxes.

I unpacked some of them and stacked stuff in flats so I can see it, and opened the rest for inspection. I had already put some of the medication items into the plastic 'Med Box' and recycled another dozen or more small boxes. Anyway, here's what the contents for this many kits look like and I have to deal with next:

108900-0
108902-1
108904-2
108906-3
108908-4
108910-5
108912-6
108914-7
108916-8
108918-9

I think I'll set up an 'assembly line' in my living room to finish this...

OK, here's the good news for all of you who were 'late to the party' but want a kit.

I ordered and paid for a few extra's because I didn't know if any would get damaged in shipping or printing. So far - fingers crossed - everything has gone great. That means I have 2 or 3 extras that I can ship. The reason that the number isn't exact is because I intend to hold one back in case one gets damaged or lost in shipping so I can replace it to the unlucky recipient.

The cost on these last few is going to be a little higher. For instance, I spent a few dollars more on getting them printed than I counted on, and there was a bit of 'feature creep'. If you're not familiar with that term, it means that I added or upgraded a few items so the cost went up. Again, I didn't plan on making any money on this - but I can't afford to LOSE any either. So the cost of these last few kits will be $300 for shipping to the US, and $325 for shipping to Canada.

If you want one of the last kits, I NEED YOUR HELP!

I want to be fair in how these are offered, so I see three options:

1. Offer them to the FOGgers who have PM'd me or posted in this thread that they want one. If this option is chosen, all kits are spoken for.

Edit - #1 was the unanimous choice, and has already been chosen.

2. Offer them on a first-come, first-served basis at a specific time.
3. Collect names and do a 'lottery' drawing.


So - ONLY to those people who want one of the last kits - please post your preference and any comments. Majority will rule. Comments must be received by NOON CDT on Monday to be considered. Those selected by whichever process will have 24 hours to arrange payment, or the next person in line will be chosen. The kit that I hold back will go to the next person in line - as long as all kits are delivered without incident, which I expect will be the case.

Please post your choice here if you want one of the last few kits.

I didn't buy one…..but for what it's worth….I think you should sell them to the guys who have PM you or posted interest.   They were the first to make it known they wanted them.
First come first served…..the first guy who PM you may miss out…...
Doing a lotto would open the door for guys who haven't followed this thread…..plus cause more work for you.


Just my two cents…

Good eye! Yes, this *WAS* the spare bedroom and I had some tools and supplies stored in there while I finish my bedroom addition. It has become 'Med Central' for a bit until I ship the Systainers.

The Senco drywall driver and the nails came from the final days of the 7 corners sale. Couldn't pass 'em up at 70% off!

I didn't notice the pics at first…..

I see you got yourself the Senco battery screw gun.   I have the corded version.    I installed a bunch of drywall with the corded version with out a single issue.    It's been the best tool I've bought…and the last tool I bought from the big box stores.    You're gonna enjoy how quickly it makes installing drywall, if that's what you're using it for.

BTW……you've done a freakin' great job with this project!   Above and beyond what I've expected when you started it!
