Hopefully tomorrow they will be providing their unbiased reviews on the 13/32" socket and what they really thought for all of you to read for your own edification.

It appears we can account for over 50 pieces at this point, so my plan will be to manufacture 100 in the first run. Subsequently in order to do this in a reasonable time frame I will be purchasing some different tooling. Having accounted for all the cost, and again, doing this for a labor of love and not making money, I am counting on getting my cost back with this run of 100 once they all sell. The different tooling will then allow for smaller runs after the first 100 at the same cost to the end user, if demand is there for whatever reason.

Again, hopefully everyone understands what it actually takes to produce this top quality socket without cutting any corners, and hopefully the club members who have put their hands on this socket will confirm this for you on this thread.

So here we go. The pricing we have decided on for the socket is $24.00 US Dollars plus shipping. Flat rate shipping through usps is approximately $6.00. And apparently you can order more than one, and it will still only be $6.00 for the shipping.

I am not asking anyone to pay anything now. It will take approximately 3 weeks to complete the run of 100 due to my current shop load, and schedule, as well as acquiring the blanks and tooling. Once they are complete, we will notify everyone individually who has expressed interest, as well as post it on this thread.

In the mean time, I realize some may not want to pay this much, which is fine. But would all of you who expressed interest, please reaffirm your interest at this point via this thread, private message, or email. I am assuming most will still be interested, but I don't wish to purchase tooling and such, and then end up in the hole on this project. I am also planning to pass this information along to each individual who expressed interest via private message or email as well.

I am not planning on purchasing the blanks or tooling till the end of the week just to make sure the interest is still there at this point. And it will take about a week maybe a little more to get the blanks.

Once the first run of 100 is complete, we will notify everyone who previously expressed or has re-expressed interest with regard to how to purchase. At this point purchasing will probably be via credit card through paypal unless other arrangements are made on an as need basis.

Bill Haag, Jr.

P.S. Thank you all for your interest in this project, I feel honored to be able to help with this apparent need.

1332,
I for one enjoy soaking up as much technical info as possible. So feel free to expound on vibration, harmonics, etc, anything engine related. You obviously have good training and a good background in this stuff. Keep it coming!

For example, why are harmonic balancers not used on 4-cyl engines, even now, but always on 6-cyl and above. Seems the 4-bangers could benefit....

Here are some pics of the 1st prototype socket from one of the car club members who critiqued it earlier this week. I believe he is planning to add his comments on it's performance at some point on here.

Hi Gang, I took the photos above that Haag1332 has posted. The socket is well made, fits nice and tight to the brass nut of the GAV, and I've ordered one. I have 3 A's, owned one since 1978ish, was a MAFCA Board member, am President of my local A Club, and like a good beer and a laugh but not when I strip a nut or bolt. Get this item while it's hot as long as Bill has the time and interest. Jim Morris

I have had a couple of people now express interest and then contact me regarding the pricing. If you are interested, but haven't followed this enough to know the pricing, please read back to post #65 where I tried to explain everything, then let me know if you are still interested.

Thank you to all of you who knew the pricing and have reafirrmed your interest. I believe I have notified all of you who reafirrmed via pm or email.

Bill

Just noticed on here that you have to wait at least 30 seconds before sending another pm. Might explain a couple of mishaps (and probably me not paying attention). Pretty sure though we have everyone on the list. If you didn't receive confirmation from me, please do not hesitate to check in with me.
