  • The Multigauge Order Thread

    Links for all installation instructions are here.


    The time has finally come. Prototype testing is done, and I'm ready to make orders for boards, all the electronic components, and other hardware. If you want the Gauge of Eternal Coolness, post up here.

    Cost will be $220. Delivery time will be 6-7 weeks after I get the first batch of orders in and processed through the various vendors I'll be working with.

    My first order will be for either 50 or 100 boards. It will depend on how many people want them. Follow up orders will be in groups of 50. If in between a batch order, you decide you want one, it will be a special order and will cost more. There are economies of scale at work here; I can't do it for the same price in small quantities.


    The Fine Print: (please read it)

    No deposit required. I know, I said I would ask for a deposit. Then I changed my mind. I would like to avoid a situation where I have a lot of money from board members, and then something goes wrong. Not that I anticipate something going wrong. But if it does, I don't want to be holding anyone's cash while they are waiting for the problems to get fixed.

    I'll be ordering all the hardware and paying the up-front costs myself. Yes, I know this involves considerable risk on several levels. I could make a mistake and end up with bad parts. I could order more than people will buy. etc. So I'm doing all I can to prevent those kinds of issues.

    To that end: This is a serious deal. I'll be putting many thousands of dollars on the line. Please follow these simple rules:

    1. If you want a Multigauge, just post here saying so.

    2. If you are not sure, please do not post in this thread.

    3. If you have a question about the Mulitgauge, either ask in the main thread or send me a PM. Don't ask questions here.

    4. If you have a question about this order, or the terms, or anything else, send me a PM. Or post it in the other thread. If the question is relevant to the whole process, I will post it up here for everyone to see.


    I mostly want to keep this thread simple so I can easily keep track of who has ordered and who has not, without going through page after page of other stuff. I'm trying to be as transparent about this process as I can, so that there is nothing going on that is not out in the open.

    Thanks for your cooperation, and all the interest in the Multigauge.


    Note: Information regarding the different colors of displays and backlights can be found here, here, and here. The last link has the information about how to order displays/backlights in any color other than white/white. All the part numbers and links to where you can buy them are included there.




    Current order status 5/23/2015:
    I have 30 confirmed orders here. I have a minor design mod to implement, then I'm going to get a batch of 50 on order. See this post in the main thread. We're on, folks.


    Order status:

    07/18/2016:

    PM sent to the following for the first units to go out:

    ajbigwood, livingstone, mel0n, Dave.R, Lutarious, packnrat, stevols, fzjerry, Waltermydoinhere, Liteitup.

    I skipped varagaz because he's in the UK and it will be easier for him to get one from Christian than from me. Pretty sure I sent him a message to that effect long ago. Also skipped Sammax, because he's no longer with us

    As a thank-you to eskort for his help with this project, he's getting a free one. He made all the ambient temp sensors Thanks, Bob.

    There are a number of guys who have not replied to my messages saying the MG is ready. Most have gotten 2 messages, with no reply. I'm going to PM all those guys today to let them know the gauges they had spoken for are now available first come first served to whoever else wants them. This means 13 gauges will be available.

    I have 6 Multigauges left. Anyone looking for a Christmas present let me know.

        I am in, awaiting updates. Also including a couple of pictures might help you so people don't have to dig through the other thread to see what it is/does.

                              Though they have not posted here, eskort and kjm are both in on this order. Both graciously offered help along the way and went of their way to do so.
