Re: [DML] Angle Drives?

It was me, $299 including shipping. That can probably come down a bit 
now the exchange rate has gone in your favour, but as I'm sure you'll 
appreciate, they're not cheap to make, and there's no quantity discount. 
I have them made to order with a wait of approx 1 week (2 to be on the 
safe side).

The crucial design changes are:

1) They're completely sealed to the stub axle so unless you don't screw 
the lower cable in properly, there should be no contamination ingress.
2) They are user-dismantlable for cleaning and re-lubrication
3) On top of my PC monitor here as I write this, I have a pack of 5 
spare stub axle cables and press collets, ready to supply at nominal 
cost to anyone who manages to break theirs (which can happen with 
problems elsewhere in the system, of course.

I stopped advertising them on ebay when Houston started shipping out 
their new batch of drives... but it appears they were only fulfilling 
very old back-orders.
