For Sale by W4ZT
(Updated March 19, 2009 13:47 )
Please Note - I didn't start this project to sell anything. I began receiving requests for SOCKETS and I decided to fill those requests. If you would like me to build a socket for you I will be happy to make you one. I maintain a small stock of sockets (though I may have none on hand due to a recent hamfest) so if you ask me to build you one, that is exactly what I will do.

I build these parts as a part of my Ham Radio Hobby, not as a business. I don't keep a rigid work schedule and the time I spend on sockets and such has to fit in with the other things that occupy this retiree's time. If you have me build a socket for you, please do not be in a big hurry. It may take some time to get your socket built but I will not forget about you and you can rest assured you will get the best socket for your project.

I supply the chassis plate for a single socket as a 6" aluminum square with #6 mounting holes for flat head screws. I no longer make dual sockets.

My standard chimney is now a solid virgin *Teflon® (*PTFE) Chimney which is available as an extra cost option (see below). CAUTION: I have documented proof that there is a problem using PVC as a chimney. CLICK HERE for pictures and more information. I will provide the socket without a chimney if that is what you want but I only recommend PTFE (Teflon) as a chimney.

I do not provide PVC chimneys at all now.

Other arrangements can be handled on special request.

Important Information
What are the fees charged by PayPal?

PayPal does not charge YOU , the buyer, anything.

PayPal DOES charge ME a fee.

This fee is based on the amount being received whether you use a credit card or whether you transfer funds directly from your bank or whether you have funds in your PayPal account. The basic formula is this: Domestic - 2.9% of the total plus $0.30. Payments from outside the U.S. incur a fee of 3.9% of the total plus $0.30. These fees are deducted from the amount you pay before I receive the money. Here are a few examples (all amounts are in U.S. Dollars and approximate):

Domestic:
$10.00 total = 2.9% ($0.29) plus $0.30 = $0.59 fee = $9.41 actual amount I receive
$55.00 total = 2.9% ($1.60) plus $0.30 = $1.90 fee = $53.10 actual amount I receive
$125.00 total = 2.9% ($3.63) plus $0.30 = $3.93 fee = $121.07 actual amount I receive
$175.00 total = 2.9% ($5.08) plus $0.30 = $5.38 fee = $169.62 actual amount I receive

Canada and others (all cross border transactions are figured at 3.9%):
$10.00 total = 3.9% ($0.39) plus $0.30 = $0.69 fee = $9.31 actual amount I receive
$55.00 total = 3.9% ($2.15) plus $0.30 = $2.45 fee = $52.55 actual amount I receive
$125.00 total = 3.9% ($4.88) plus $0.30 = $5.18 fee = $119.82 actual amount I receive
$175.00 total = 3.9% ($6.83) plus $0.30 = $7.13 fee = $167.87 actual amount I receive

These fees apply to all transactions whether it is for merchandise or shipping.

I do NOT charge these fees back to YOU!

So why do I accept PayPal?

To make it easy on you!

And why don't I charge extra?

You wouldn't like it and neither would I.

I would rather lose a little in fees than frustrate you with add ons.

 
*Teflon® is PolyTetraFluoroEthylene (PTFE)
PTFE is a fluorocarbon-based polymer. It is commonly called Teflon® which is the registered trademark of DuPont. PTFE is also manufactured by other companies. It is available with or without filler materials to meet specific needs. The PTFE used here has no fillers and is called "virgin PTFE".
