Ehr.. the wiring and the box.. ok.. but ehm.. wasn't the usb thingy originally supplied with the pedals of yers m8?   or wassit payd for seperately, the extra buttons... i remember something like that.

just looked at yer pedal-thread m8, the USB box comes to 60 quid, but it's included when you buy the pedals for 240.

So.. are you that handy that you can make a usb wiring that is found to be a different device in itself operating through USB?

(why to buy from retailer when you can get from the manufacturer)  :)

EDIT:Oh yeah forgot to mention it would also show in windows as "PDSM button box" or whatever ive decided before purchasing chips :)
But its only a thought.. many ppl that want these sorta thingies make one themselves, and the build quality would
really have to justify the price.. well see.

So thats 34+10 for the shipping or can you get those cheaper at the local store Jarkks?

+ the 20 euro's for the wiring and buttons then the workcosts is a variable as i'm sure if Jarkks doesn't feel like it he'll overprice yah for bothering him!



hehe

so 40 euro's for a whole days work seems a bit low.. think theyll go for 120.. hehe

I think it would put the cost down if i bought for example 10 at a time..
i dunno.. like i mentioned above the build quality would have to match the price..
and if i ever make another i know it will take less time maybe, dont have to think about the wires anymore
just do it next time.

That's true, making something for the second or even third time takes less as you are getting more expirienced....

But honestly m8, ppl who'd want a box like that are often not able to fiddle around with electronics themselfes. (me for instance.. i love looking at stuff like that, but to get my head round it.. it's a bit.. ehr.... too fiddly?....

just thinking about it...ehr.. i think i'd have to redo my seat a bit...extend the plank that's holding the wheel up to fit it to the left.. hehe... cuzz at the right there's the shifter.

Well im not too talented with electronics myself.. its pretty easy to figure out anyway.. all you gotta have is just a little handyman skills and you can do a whole lotta thingies :)
