Hello fellow Pinsiders,
I wanted to reach out and see if there would be any interest in producing a DiY kit for my rectifier boards. I have currently been holding off on doing this in the past for two main reasons. The first reason would be for the simple fact that it is inevitable that someone will install the parts incorrectly and smoke the board or even something else in the machine and then possibly blame the board for it. The second reason is the solder will not look as good which lowers the over all quality of the board and I have always strived to make my product with the highest of quality standards. I am starting to see more companies offer this option and I have always wanted to provide the option but never pulled the trigger due to the reasons already mentioned. One idea was for me to make a DiY kit logo in the flooded copper region of the board to let second hand buyers aware that this was a kit. Please let me know your thoughts on whether this would be a great option or if it wouldn't matter one way or the other? I would also like to know if you would be disappointed if you were buying a used machine with a kit in it, wishing it would have been a preassembled unit instead and whether or not you think this option lowers the over all quality of the product?
