Well...this a fun morning for me to find this thread has exploded into something negative. @lox897 @marcus @Maxid for your information, I was the one who brought the 15mm kits to market. That eBay seller has STOLEN my product photos, my write up of the product description and is undercutting me. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER IF YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST IN SUPPORTING PEOPLE WHO FURTHER THE DIY ESK8 COMMUNITY. As I said, they have STOLEN my photos, so who knows if you will get the same product or something of comparable quality.
I PAID for the DEVELOPMENT of this product, determined the specifications, got prototypes made, revised specs, got more prototypes made. It took me 6 MONTHS from when I first saw the need to have affordable 15mm kits to when I actually started selling them back in January in this thread:
I have great reviews from everyone. I sold the products at a slightly lower cost to have some market penetration and get thing started. Just when I'm starting to turn the corner and make this worth my investment of time and money, this comes along...I'm just a guy trying to add some value to the community here and get paid fairly. Believe me, I'm not getting rich on this.
ALSO my product ships from Vancouver, Canada. Delivery time is generally 1-2 weeks, so you get your product a lot faster than overseas which sometimes takes months.
I truly hope @lox897 will do something about removing this negative chatter from my thread. This is exactly how you STOP INNOVATION and discourage use of this forum. Encouraging people on here to buy from supplier who has copied and undercut me...I expected a lot better from this forum to be honest. I don't have the volume or resources to order such large quantities and provide such low prices and have paid for the R&D as well. Definitely NOT COOL.
@JLabs thanks for your support.
