Default Tapco - Sharpie taps

This group buy is for taps to cut threads for the Sharpie Stainless Steel Pen Grip Refill #1747388, not for the Sharpie Stainless Steel Pen Grip Fine Point Pen #1800730 - There is no limit to the number of participants in this group buy

(Please note that I have not personally made any of these – I am just running the group buy. I am not responsible for the appropriateness of this tap or final fitment of your components)


Items to be purchased: Tapco 0.450 - 26 tpi taps (either taper, or plug, or bottom, or any combination thereof)


When signing up for this group buy, please specify how many of each type of tap you wish to buy, and if you want the USPS shipment to you insured (for more than $50). For example:

1 x plug tap
1x plug tap (Ti treated)
1 x bottom tap
No additional insurance


Price per unit:

minimum number of pieces for group buy: 12

12 to 23 pieces: $34.85 each

24 or more pieces: $29.28 each

Additional Costs:

1. Share of shipping cost from Tapco to me (estimated by Tapco at $15). Each person will pay an equal share of shipping. Estimated at $2.00 per person

2. cost of shipping from me to you (within USA: USPS Small Flat Rate Box, $5.35; outside USA by agreement)

3. Insurance (if desired): within USA, the first $50 insurance is included in the cost of a SFRB, so for a single tap insurance is free. A second tap will incur a charge of $2.60 for insurance. A third tap would be $3.30 (unless we reach the 24-piece price level, in which case it would still be $2.60.)

4. “Ti Treatment” of taps, if desired is estimated at $9 per tap. You MUST inform me that you want this option prior to payment so I can add it to your total.

5. Any Paypal fees subtracted from payments you send me

ORDER DEADLINE
Orders must be placed in this thread by midnight Friday November 22 and payments received by Noon (Central) Monday November 23.

PAYPAL ONLY:
I will be placing the order by Noon (Central) Monday November 23. If you have not made the PayPal payment by the deadline you will be removed you from the buy. I will confirm your total via PM and receipt of payment.

Several members and organizers have asked PayPal regarding the use of "Friends and Family" payment option. And it is OK in their eyes, and has been each time they were contacted. The "Friends and Family"payment method has no fees for the recipient, thus saving you money. If you choose NOT to use the send money to Friends and Family option, please add 4% Paypal goods and services fee.


I will issue PayPal refunds for any overpayments. I try to get as close to even as possible – anything less than $1.00 will not be refunded.


SHIPPING:
Will be defaulted to USPS SFRB for online postage price of $5.25 + $0.10 for shipping labels. It will include tracking and delivery confirmation

Shipping outside the USA – contact me by PM and we’ll work it out.

After the signup is closed, I will compute everyone's costs and send by PM, with my Paypal address.

These taps are manufactured to order, Tapco quoted 2 – 5 working days turnaround, but this cannot be guaranteed -- signing up for this group buy signifies acceptance of the fact that we are not in control of delivery dates.

$20.85 - didn't matter if I used a declared value of $50 or $100, it was the same price.

Check into sending it to Canada by First Class Mail in a padded envelope. Should be half or less but might not be insurable.

Is this pen a kit type or made from scratch? I've heard about this pen but only to buy it at a store. Are there people making it?

Thanks

Never mind. I knew I would find the answer as soon as I posted the questions.

Thanks again
