    I also was curious if the shipping would be increased with all the people involved. I don't think it would, but this thing is huge!
    Look up before you hook up!!

    There is a cut off listed in the first post.

    Agreed. Pull the plug soon. We need to make sure those that are pulling off this group buy don't lose money on the deal. As such I expect to be shorted 1' or so on my fabric order. That way it should work out in favor of our benefactors. To that end (when I am not on my cell phone) I will up my order...

    If I were closer, I'd offer to help cut and package... but it's a bit of a drive....

    Thanks for doing this!

    Sorry, I should of rephrased that batter.

    The cutoff should be sooner. In less than 24 hours we have over 500 yards. With 4 days to go, this is going to be way too much for some to handle. That's a lot of money involved too.

    No issue with stopping it sooner, as the OP decides.

    There's precedent for Group Buy starters to bear in mind as a serious consideration - The Amsteel Buy ended at about 7.75 miles of cording. Buys can get unexpectely large quickly. It's probably a good practice to set a material limit, in addition to a time limit.

    There is one natural cutoff that hasn't been mentioned. Magna doesn't even have much more than we already have commitments for.

    At least not today at this price...

    Actually I just checked and we have gone over the limit that they have at that price already.

    I just bought a bolt for myself so I can be taken off the list. Here is the revised list.
