    CLOSED: Thermoflect, Thermo-drape, Aluminized Fabric

    Ok,

    I've been thinking about this for awhile and finally think I'm ready to handle the logistics. For those not familiar this fabric is commonly used in hospital surgery garments to keep patients warm on the very cool operating table. (cool temps slow baterial growth)
    Ok, I've found 4'x7' blankets in boxes of 25 for $150.36 deliver to me. That bring the cost of each to $6.02 for me. But, I only want a few of them to experiment with and maybe make something cool. I'd like to split the costs with other interested parties; if there are any.
    As per forum group buy rules I need to include shipping & paypal fees which I've not yet determined. If permitted I would consider adding a $0.73 charge per blanket to account for shipping. Bring the calculation for final cost to X(6.75)+paypal cost | X= nmber of blankets ordered. I'm certainly not expecting to make any sort of mentionable profit. In fact I do expect to have some addiontal expenses come out of my pocket. I am willing to keep up to 10 blankets myself. So, once/if 15 of them are accounted for I will post a 1 week notice with absolute final costs. All interested parties will have this week to make payment via paypal, only.

    This was not expected; at all. Well, lets let it go for at least 48hrs and see how many we get.

    I'm fine with handling the order and shipping; I got a few helping hands at home. But, I was initialling planning to put 5 out there during "last call" in case anyone changed their mind at the last minute.
    If we get enough interested parties to order 2 boxes I'll still keep 10 for myself though. That might raise my final delivery cost and hence the final total cost for everone. (certainly no more the $0.50) I'll look into that and post again later.


    Thank you all for your interest. Please continue to confirm your interest via PM as that is what I will use to build my spreadsheet for tracking all this. You can hold off on paypal or shipping info until I post a "Last Call" message. Whem, I do that I will send my paypal info to everyone whom has already ordered and you will have a week to make your payment and get your shipping info to me. (give or take)

    Sorry for the slight change of plan mid game I just want everyone interested to have a chance to get in. However, this could get out of hand quickly so I think I'll have to set the limit at 2 boxes. Again, I'll be back with details later.
