If there is a run, I will buy a speedo gauge, of whatever the design turns out to be. It will grace my beer fridge if not my actual speedo dial.

At $40, I would be in for a kitten rpm gauge face. I might even bedazzle it myself.

I would also be in to purchase a tach gauge face with the turbo around the center and a kitty face for the gauge needle center. That would be amazing. 7200 redline pls.

Edit: I should probably just go place an order on his site.

Adam, group buy? Lol it sounds like those of us who actually want one would rather just the tach and with the design iI suggested. What would you charge for that? Say we could get 6-8 buyers?

I'd be happy to make you one! However... did you want the special speed scale? That's where 90% of the work went. The pony and kitty were a few minutes of work together.

Putting a stock speed scale back on this would be quite easy.

If you (or anyone) wants to order something, please use my site. I can't take orders via PM or via posts on a random thread.

Yeah $289 might be just a bit much for where I'm at in the project, sadly :(

Individual gauges are $30 + shipping. That's assuming no custom work needs to be done.

Still need to go play with paint.
Yeah, I was doing bbundy's gauge for the price of the gauge and throwing in the design time free. But he apparently wanted a collection of plastic gears instead of a custom designed gauge funded by a community of his friends.

I would have been honored to have all of this done for me and see folks chipping in. Guess I'm weird.

That's... not great. That's akin to buying a semi-rare $40 baseball card (or something) and taping it to your tire and driving around.

The gauges I make are out of an exotic plastic made to my specs with a matte coating that's quite delicate. They can't survive being touched by greasy hands or getting wet. So, while one could be taped to a beer fridge... you'd be better off just lighting a cigar with the $40.

I could make a kitty tach. Wouldn't be hard at all.

I can't make something to put on your needle center... or could I? Hmm. I could do a domed insert like for my keychains. I never considered that.

And, again, please order anything you want through my site. Posts on a message board won't work as an order.

Sure. I could do a run of these tachs. I can't really offer much of a discount beyond the $30 per gauge + shipping, but I could do the design work on the house. It doesn't save me any production work to make ten gauges the same or ten unique gauges.

I'm confused by it myself. I have no honest idea why it happened or what exactly drove it. I didn't run any sort of sale, but in like 36 hours, I got roughly 2 weeks worth of orders. This usually happens around Thanksgiving when I do my annual sale, but... superbowl? I've never seen anything like it.

Best I can figure is 50% of folks celebrating and 50% of folks self-medicating with retail therapy. I don't know why they'd pick my shop. I don't even watch football.

Blissfully, orders are back to normal now. Still, I've got more work than I can handle at this moment.

Would this work? How much more would it cost? If you think it'd work I'm in! Does it make a difference if it's for an NA or NB tach?

Sure! With the group buy I was really just trying to make it worth it for you to do the design work.

So, who is in? I'll take one!

In for kitty tach. 30+shipping sounds like a great price. I'm going to refund money now. Thanks for the fun guys.

Let me make sure I can make the needle cap thingy. I'll work on it this weekend.

7200 redline? Big goddamn pink wedge for the redline indicator?

Yes, big pink wedge! 7200 is perfect

If you just make a kitten already cut out, I'm sure we can find a way to affix it to the needle. Double sided tape or something.

It would be a domed sticker. You'd just wipe the needle center with an alcohol pad and then stick it on.
