This might be the first time I have even been early for anything, but the jacks arrived when I was home today and they are all shipped to you guys!

Plus, papa has 260 jacks of his own now. :cloud:

When we are ready for Round 4, just start posting!

I'm going to need about 200 more jacks next month so I am posting for Round 4 of the jacks group buy.

I'll set the target goal at 500, and the prices at that amount are:

It will be 1.27 USD each. Shipping to United States (from Connecticut) will be 5.50 USD. International shipping will be 17 USD for 75-100 ordered. Anything over 100 will be between 20-35 USD based (for INTL shipping) on my recent experience. Something less than 50 jacks I will calculate based on the amount you order. I usually get you the best rates that I can because I do the total weight for jacks, washer, and nut and make it accurate.

If we happen to get over 1000, the price drops by about 10 cents.

Beginning of the month is here. I *think* I might be able to purchase 1000 jacks myself and then offer them at the 1.10 best price. I'll know for sure if I can do this in a few days. Actually, it's more like 1.17 after paypal fees, but it's a little cheaper than the 500 price point.

If things work out the way I hope, I'll order the 1000 jacks next week and then you can just tell me how many you want and they'll ship immediately from my home base.

If it doesn't work out the way I expect, I'll start taking $$$ for jacks at the end of next week and we'll do it the old fashioned way.

I am trying to make it so I can speed up the process a little, which is not the easiest to do so we'll see.

I am hoping to order the 1000 by the end of next week. Shouldn't be much later than that unless something unexpected happens to my expectation! 8_)

Alright! I am ordering the jacks on Saturday. They should be here by the middle of next week. I am paying for over 1000 up front so we get the best price and you can just let me know how many you want. They will ship immediately after you pay.

I'll probably grab 1000-1500 depending on how impulsive I feel that day. I think I have about 100 left in my own stash so I want to make sure I am left with at least 500-600 for my builds.

The price will be 1.18 each, I believe. The extra 8 cents is for shipping supplies, paypal fees, and a candy bar for my efforts :bacon:

If you do another round, I would be up for 200 at $1.10 ea. But that would depend on if you do it in the next month or so.

So, I was going to buy 1000 and offer them from stock at the cheapest price point but I blew my treasure chest on some gear so I have to do the group buy the old fashioned way.

I went back through the the thread and PM'd everyone who said they were interested in getting jacks for this round of the buy. If I happened to miss you, just PM me.

The price right now is $1.38 each, which includes a few extra cents to cover paypal fees and shipping supplies. If we happen to jump up to 1000, I can either buy you extra jacks or refund you. I suspect we'll stay below 1000 this time, though.

Shipping to the U.S. is $5.15 for 100 or less. Shipping international is $17 for 100 or less. If you get more, we'll calculate the best rate.

I am taking money right now. PM for the details. We'll try to order quickly. Hop on the train, choo choo ride it.

Anyone have any idea whether these jacks will fit Roman's 5U/MOTM 266-style PCBs??

Does it use board mounted jacks? IF so, then no. These are the solder lug version.
