      Does this approach make much difference in costs?

      I'm guessing your biggest costs are R&D.

      These ones are hand made - final ones have the parts inserted manually and then wave soldered.

      When you do the sums, the cost is about the same either way for this method or SMT in smaller size boards and where the size is not the main issue such as in almost every pinball application.

      Our biggest cost is RENT! It costs MORE to rent this place in China than I could get an equivalent building with similar amenities for in Australia. That rent bill comes around real quick every month!

      Hi Mike,

      I was just reading another thread where you wrote: "I'm very comfortable with the way our electronics has developed despite our initial setbacks when we lost all of the work done. That's a story for a different thread."

      Were you talking about your programmer passing away, or was this some other setback?

      That was my main comment but I can assure you there have been many many other setbacks along the way, many more than I could even touch on here.

      The important thing is we have moved through the difficulties and are now close to the finish line. Still some things to get done but it's now looking promising.

      It's been a long wait but that was expected.

      Great to see it all coming together mike. Can't wait to catch up and chat things Pinball again.
