Where did you guys get your items online where the shipping wont be ridiculous for the small parts? Mouser for example charges 9 dollars FOR SHIPPING ON these little leds. Please post up links to the sites where you bought the parts.

Farnell give me free postage if I buy more than $10???
If $9 postage is too much you can always give Smartboard a call, I think they set you up for about $6000.

I assume you think my shipping is expensive as well with regular Mail... I can tell you It will not get cheaper than this as I loose money in the end on this whole deal...

If you want more than LED's send me a PM and I'll see what  I can dig up..

I will begin making TSAL6400 LEDs available at my site tomorrow when I reopen. They will be 50 cents each.

Thanks,

When I was in my "experimenting" phase I bought these nice little switches. I still have a few lying around.
