Knex Pricing

How much is Knex going for? I have a 33 lb. lot and was woundering how much you guys would pay for it.  I have lost all interest in Knexing, and am now into the real thing. I made the 6 foot and it sucked, but it did fire about 40 yards (you guys way over estimate range, there's no way you could get 200 yards out of a knex gun, I built the sr-v2 and it went 25 yards.)

Best price for PCB? Answered

Hi,   I am looking to make one PCB with dimensions 7"x7". I know that this is rather large, but was wondering if anyone knew the cheapest place to have this made as long it is decent quality? Time is not an important factor. It will probably be 2 layers, 4 at most. I know about Sparkfun's BatchPCB service. Thanks for your help.

UK Fuel Price Petition

When I bought my Mini, I could not squeeze £20 into the tank.  Now a re-fill costs me £28-£30. There is a petition waiting to be signed by at least 100,000 people in an effort to lower fuel prices. It currently has 88,000+ signatures. I've signed and ask you to sign to get this subject debated in parliament and hopefully get fuel prices down, the prices won't come down unless we try, and try hard to get the debate going. Please sign it now at this link. News: since posting this topic, the number of signatures has risen by over a thousand. (Sorry, non-UK members, this is a UK-only petition, but if you know any Brits with a vested interest in fuel prices (ie, all of them), then please pass this on to them.)

Price of regular white LED's???

I just came back from my local electronics store and was kind of shocked to find that the price for a white LED is 2 bucks from where I come from, which is about US$ 0.62 each! I was thinking of buying 100 of them which ends up around US$62.00!!! Is that the standard price? It doesn't look like the regular LED, it's somewhat smaller and shorter in size, with a flat head instead of the usual rounded ones. But the price difference is so big! The standard round headed one's are only US$ 0.09 each! But the funny thing is the salesperson told me that round headed LED's DO NOT come in white, only red, yellow and green! But in fact I bought them before from another store but sadly they are out of business now so there's only this other store left in my city. So my point is, is that the standard price at your local store? How much do you pay for a single white regular LED? PS. by 'regular', I mean those with rounded heads and can commonly be found almost everywhere such as toys and decorations. Also I'm not referring to those high powered LED's used in modern flashlights. The pictures below shows the regular LED, and the one which I saw at the local store which has a flat head.

Illogical Pro Membership Pricing

Maybe I am misreading,but; the current Pro membership pricing states the prices as:  $3.95/Month billed annually; $8.95/Month billed quarterly; or $69.95/2 Years one time payment.  This would work out to $47.40/year; $107.40/year; or $34.98/year respectively. Does this make any sense?  Perhaps you ment to price the second option as $8.95/QUARTER rather than per month?  This would work out to $35.80/year which would be a whole lot more logical. Thanks for checking (I would like to upgrade but would like to know the correct prices before I do so)

I work at Familly Dollar now and I use one of these price guns sometimes to put anti-theft stickers on mechandice. They are very comfortable to hold and are easy to use so I thought maybe I can use the format to create a k;nex gun. I am working through another project right now but I will work on this project when I am done. I just thought it would be fun to share my idea and see what other people think of it. Please make suggestions if you have any and if you have time feel free to try to make one yourself!

Another Consequence of Rising Gas Prices

Everybody knows that rising gasoline and fuel prices are taking a toll on consumers' wallets. But few anticipated this problem: a shortage of numbers at gasoline stations. Since gas prices have easily surpassed $4 per gallon, gas stations in New York don't have enough 4s to advertise their prices--so they've had to improvise and make DIY numbers.Of course, with gas expected to hit $5 per gallon soon, some stations are prepared: On Monday, at a BP station on Coney Island Avenue and Lancaster Avenue in Gravesend, Brooklyn, a 2 had been turned upside down to make a 5 for the large sign on the corner.When the price hits the $5.20 range, though, they'll probably have to start improvising again.New York Times

Provide cost estimate at the start of classes?

I love the new classes feature here at Instructables, and have the ambition to complete as many of them as possible. I do have some feedback for them, however, and that is that the introduction to the class should include a rough estimate of how much it's going to cost to buy the various bits needed to complete the class. I've just finished the Arduino class and loved the fact that a lot of the lessons leading up to the final project contributed to the final build, and as such helped keep the costs of buying the materials (relatively) low. The same can't be said for the Electronics class, however, which has different projects to build for each lesson and is working out rather expensive as a result. Now please understand, I'm not complaining about the fact you have to build a project for each lesson. If anything I'm rather enjoying it. But a little heads up of what roughly how much the class is going to end up costing would be a welcome addition. I can see this consisting of two different sums: - the cost of equipment which is needed, but once you have it, you have it for keeps. - and the cost of any materials which will be consumed by the project. I'm keen on moving onto another class just as soon as I complete the Electronics one, but would like to be able to work out which one I should go for, taking things like price into account, before I get started - rather than maybe having to abandon the class because I suddenly find I can 't afford some of the equipment or materials I'll need for it. Thank you

Help Me Establish Gas Station Fraud- By Exposing Fuel Manipulation.

Prelude:Every week I only ever travel the same route, at the same time, with the same amount of traffic on the road.I fill my cars fuel tank once a week, with $50AU of petrol.The prices lately have been stable and around $1.30AU/LWhat this post is about is the fact that due to me travelling the exact same Km's per week, I have noticed a significant difference between the two petrol stations fuel that I fill at.Can anyone educate me as to why when I fill at one station I get 8 days of travel and when I fill at the other station I only get 4 days of travel?Once again I am filling the same amount of fuel at each station, just one stations fuel (Major corporate outlet) seems to be of a much lower quality.Is it possible that something is a-miss with this situation. Is there a variable im not considering?After 4 months of weekly refills I feel that conclusively, one stations fuel seems to combust better than the others.Is this possible and if so are there any home experiments I could try to prove my theory via testing the fuels combustion/quality.I only write this as I sit here on a week, where I was forced to fill up at the "suspect" station. Im on day 3 now and my fuel is red lining... What is happening?I know the difference of 3 -8 days is a massive, surely others would have noticed this also. I thought I was mistaken the first few times it happened. But now I am positive, something is wrong.I might add, I use premium fuel with the same octane level at both stations.Could that be it? Would they be mis-quoting the octane level in their fuel? That is the only thing I can think of.

Shoe Suggestions? Answered

Hello all you in the Instructables Community. I need a new pair of shoes. They need to be casual yet can withstand the outdoors. I would like them to be in a reasonable price range though. I would prefer them to be in style if possible. If you have any suggestions that would be great! Thanks, joespicnictables

How does impedance effect headphones? Answered

I've decided that I want to buy Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Headphones but they come in three different impedances (and unimportant aesthetic variations).  It comes in 32 ohms ($349), 250 ohms ($260), and 600 ohms ($369).  I've already looked on the internet and it basically said that impedance does not effect sound quality but the MSRP on these differ up to 100+ dollars between models, what gives?  I will mostly be driving these headphones off a laptop and occasionally an ipod. http://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/shop/hah/headphones-and-headsets/at-home/music-pleasure/dt-990.html

What's the best/cheapest kind of amplifier to get for a simple turntable/record player? Answered

 Also, I'm looking for speakers...what speakers are appropriate? Do I need to look at the turntable output? I'm asking this cause I don't have much space to put everything so I need to know what I'm looking out for. I don't know much about record players/turntables. :) Not sure about the cartridge actually... How can I check that? As for the equipment...It's an iphono vinyl record player with a USB interface you can use to connect it to a computer to record music from vinyl records. It also has outputs for R/H and L/H for an amplifier, but I don't know anything more than that...

What is a good laptop to buy at a good price? Answered

Hi. I am trying to save up for a laptop, and I'd like to know where I can get a pretty good one at a decent price (can't buy off eBay or Amazon). I want one with at least 4GB of RAM and a hard drive with at least  200GB. Does anyone know where to get one on the cheap and how much it costs? Thanks, TheOneAndOnlyMissingno.

Did not get my price, super disappointing.

A while back I won a first price on the Automation contest. It consisted of a pack of Tessel boards and I was excited to test them out. The price was sent by FedEx to my location in Costa Rica. When it arrived at FedEx they contacted me because the invoice needed to be more specified for the customs. They can be quite picky in this country. I contacted Instructables/ Autodesk believing this should be an easy thing to fix. The lady at FedEx Costa Rica had some questions and needed a new more detailed invoice. That was all. Small thing I thought. Well, it turned out that Autodesk was not at all interested in helping. I had to write many emails and messages before I even got a reply back and then they where super slow to respond, finally they did a small effort to send a new invoice but it was not as specified as the lady at FedEx needed it to be and now they do not even reply to my emails at all. So be aware contest winners, if there is an issue with customs, Instructables/ Autodesk will hardly lift a finger to help. I find it weird that my price will end up in the garbage bin of FedEx just because they are not interested in helping. Extremely disappointing! I thought Instructables/ Autodesk valued their makers more.
