...Assembled means only the SMT components will be provided assembled on the board. You will need to assemble all the through hole components.
And probably desolder a lot from a donor Atari ST.

I mentioned this before but I don't think anyone really replied... In that I was just basically considering not doing the bare boards because looking at the list, there is not really enough people to warrant doing it now.

I can say that preliminarily cost look like they will be £14 for the SMT assembly and parts (This does not include the PCB price which will probably be around £35 or something) .. So it is probably only really going to affect @kodak80 and @PaulJ (I know you said you was fine either way anyway).. There is a couple of others who haven't specified I don't think of logging the forum for a long time anyway.. But we are pushed to get up to 10 boards there I think now.

The problem lies as said somewhere earlier, I can probably ship 6 boards as a small package PCB only, or three assembled boards...I could ship them by courier for example but the cost will go up a fair amount...Or shipping two smaller packages would probably be cheaper anyway..

But in the mix of all this, ordering just say 10 bare PCBs will ramp up the price a fair bit anyway as normally I have to order something like 30 to get the price something sensible per board. A quick look and it looks like the board and actually go up in price by about £8 each.. Which isn't really that far off assembly price anyway, but again that limits how many boards I can ship...

In terms of shipping last time @kodak80 , In my notes I have £25 for your boards, Even if they had to be shipped in two packages, that is another £25... Looks like you wanted for boards so my be able to fit all the anyone box anyway.. So its all making my head hurt, but I really don't think it is worth even bothering with the bare boards as it is not really going to save anything at the end of the day.

I dont think there is much point in a bare version unless someone is into self pain.

Exactly what I am thinking. Nobody likes lots of flipping board fun.

Same here, I asked for one bare and one populated, you can make it two populated then, no worries.

Go ahead and switch me to two populated boards. I've got enough other projects to cause myself grief anyway. :D

Updated list. Pretty conclusive really that the bird seed boards will be sold only now.

I am hoping to start taking pre-orders for these boards soon.
