Folks, I'd buy them myself at $100 each. Without a long explanation of my asking price (and enough have purchased to know I'm within reason) by the time you make the radiused notches for the lock bar, angle cuts at the bottom, route out the display holes & latch, drill the lamp socket holes, and then paint them white to match the original you probably understand why the cost is where I'm at. Not withstanding the cost of raw materials, cost of making a jig which ensures predictable duplication, carbide bits, and special plate for my router to follow the jig. Without exception those who have purchased from me in the past have reiterated that they could make the insert panel themselves, but it wasn't worth the hassle, time, and trouble to make a one-off insert panel for a few bucks less than they would have invested. I want to be fair to the market and also fair to myself. The small profit I do make goes right back into the next insert panel jig, which if all goes to plan will be Seawitch and any future title that drives scratch builds.
If it were easy, others would be making them and undercutting my price. Competition is the fuel for capitalism. I'd be able to produce them for $100 each IF I were able to sell 100 of each title. So far I am at 1/10th of that, if that. I'm not asking you to pay above your comfort level, rather give an insight to the reason why I've priced them where I did. It seems that some are quick to say "I could make 'em for 1/2 that!" without a thorough understanding of the time and effort involved in creating them.
Thank you in advance for letting me express my side....... If you have put your name on the Quicksilver list, rest assured I am cutting them and working through the manufacturing process. Expect an email or PM in the next few weeks regarding payment and shipping information.
