We have basically met our fundraising goal (just one $20 spot left):

LarryD $60
Shootist $40
Dick $40
Trompos del Mundo $40
Earl $40
ta0 $40
Sabaspin $20
Jim $20
Eric $20
Kirk $20
Neff $20
Ludo $20
JNeff $20

Total = $400

Congratulations everybody!

Now please, send your paypal payment to "paypal(at)iTopSpin.com".
IMPORTANT: If you are in the US select the option that says that you are sending a payment to a friend. That way paypal will not charge a commission.
If you don't use paypal, send me a pm and I'll give you my address for sending a check (I already got Larry's!). I'll send the money to Don and we will get the machine on the way to Cincinnati.

I have the feeling that extraordinary things will come from this machine in the hands of John (no pressure  ;D ). It may just take a while.

I guess we should not turn away any monies. So you are in!
After Don confirms the actual shipping cost, any leftover will go to Johnm to buy consumables.

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project. I have received a total of $280 (plus $20 were literally lost in the mail  :( ). I am still missing pledges from 5 people ($100).

Don: have you been able to test the machine?

Don tested the machine yesterday and everything works including the oven light  :)
He is putting it in a skid and we are figuring the shipping.

I have already in hand $340 of the money pledged and some more is in the mail. The machine should be on its way to John soon  8)

Excellent!
One more machine to the Cincy mad spintop labs!

These types of project give the forum an extra dimension.

The molding machine on the pallet weighted around 200 lb and the quote came at $290.67. But Don asked around and found an independent shipper that quoted $150. He comes recommended. The only thing is that we need to wait until he travels to Ohio in about 2 weeks.

I updated the list of contributors on the thread above. Thirteen members contributed a total of $400. The actual amount received after Paypal fees on the international transfers was $398.14. Thanks everybody!

This is what I got a few days ago from Don:

Trucker still has not picked up the machine.  Guess that comes with the discount price?  My topman e-mail is giving me trouble, so hold off on the payment for now.

So the machine is still waiting skidded at Don's place and the money is still in the spintop Paypal account. Hopefully the project will proceed soon.

I've been away for a few days and missed this, but glad to pitch in for 1 spot too.

Shipping and powdered plastic funds...

Things look in good order, the shippers handled it with care.

Thank everyone, now well see where things will go...
