Jerry is making rapid progress with the machine work on the end plates and should be contacting those who have paid to provide you with the follow on postage cost. 

After going through the weekend mail and a PayPal update today, there are still 10 people who haven't paid. That represents 40 plates we're holding. Please pay by Friday May 26 or we'll have to offer them to others. I've also had a couple of requests after the initial order had closed. If I have cancellations or no-pays I will first fill additional orders from those before looking at a second order. I don't think we'll get as good a discount on the second order, if there is one, as the quantity will be much smaller. 

Here is some additional information from a list member who made the kits possible. There are clear lenses available for the LED holes that will dress up the front panel but are not necessary for proper operation in a lab or shop environment. The lenses are available from Mouser Electronics, part number 593-3220C, manufacturer's part number CMS322CTP. The retainer for the lens is Mouser part number 593-RNG268, manufacturer's part number RNG268. Lenses are $1.44 each in small quantities, retainers are $.26 in small quantities. You'll want 4 of each. You'll have to slightly enlarge each hole to accommodate the lenses. Again, these are not necessary for proper operation.
