I am ok with paying a little extra to make sure that these get made.

So how are we doing with this? I sent money a couple weeks ago and I'm not on the list in the first post, hopefully there are others not listed also.

I am in for two sets shipped together if these get made and shipped within a very reasonable time. I am very bad at waiting.

What do you consider a reasonable time? I think Savington will go as soon as he gets enough orders. With your 2 orders should put us up around 9 orders. Which means it might happen very soon, hopefully.

I'd rather have Sav suggest a plan (and then stick to it).
Sav, once you start the project, what is the turnaround time before it's shipped?

If you didn't give a screen name in your paypal or it wasn't obvious, you are probably one of the anonymous buyers.

Once I place the order, I should have product at my door in 4 weeks. If I can get a bunch of orders this week, we can all expect parts July 1st.

It will be obvious. Please check.

July 1 means I need to get some interim 10mm studs. Can you post the exact specs in terms of thread pitch, overall length, threaded distance, etc? I will get some ordinary steel studs in the same dimensions and tap the manifold accordingly.

Is your username a combination of your first and last name? If so, I have your payment. I don't know how protective some of my customers are about their real names vs. internet pseudonyms so I err on the side of caution.

The studs will be made to M10x1.5. If you're doing an interim steel stud, you want something with an overall length of approximately 40mm.

I'll edit the OP with this info, but I am going to move forward with this buy. I will extend group buy pricing to the first 12 orders (6 are spoken for) and only if you place the order before May 31st. Once I place the order (probably early next week) I will have a firmer date as far as shipping goes, but don't expect to have anything in your hands before early July.

I'm surprised how few people are in on this group buy.

Savingaids,
You may want to advertise on the Mini boards too because the R56 Mini suffers from this problem and they frequently melt plastic valve covers from it too, lol.

What's the latest update on his guys?
I'm very for this GB, even though it seems that will take more time that what I thought...
What's the ECD on this?

Hey guys do you know for which inconel alloy we are talking about?
600, 601, 617, 625, 718, X-750, or Inconoly 800 series (800 through 825)?

I sure do, but I'm not going to kiss and tell. For the amount of time, money and aggravation I have into the R&D on these, the alloy will remain a secret.

That's pretty ridiculous statement Savington and a bit embarrassing too.
It's not that this is a new alloy that you created or something for god shake...

I can tell you that the best for the application would be the 718 (which is also used in aerospace applications) and 751 which is more rare to find. Since the prices and the properties between the inconel alloys varies I want to make sure what we are getting here...

For anyone interested here are the datasheets for the 718 and 751

Max,

It is Sav's and other vendors' prerogative to keep certain info a trade secret. Lots of vendors do this. I can imagine that they did have to spend a bunch of money and time to figure out a solution, and wouldn't want other vendors to easily get that info they worked for and just undercut their prices because they didn't spend the initial R&D money.

If you feel that strongly about it, then don't buy his product. You are free to not buy the product and go spend time to figure this stuff out yourself. The rest of us will each make our own decisions whether or not we are willing to part with X dollars for Y product given that Z info was withheld from us.

I'm not trying to be an ***, but that's reality. Sav et al are spending extra time and money to come up with a real product that they can stand behind. That's a bit more involved than one of us just posting information such as "hey I've used this at work for holding ICBM's together at re-entry and it will probably work for us turbo weenies".

Cheers.

Sorry if I came across as rude or snide there, that wasn't my intention at all. I simply have no desire to undercut my current financial investment and R&D work by revealing which alloy we're using for our product. Sorry.
