Actually got a large inventory to move now, so possibly will make some great singles on the very cheap end and sell, or simply put some stuff together for the hell of it.
What would some of you canucks like to see most?

Personally I'd like to see how to "Macgyver" something together, either chiller or direct die... just something that works and that can be experimented with. I'm not sure if that is your intention or not though...

I've read up on this a while ago and certainly looked doable for a home tinkerer to get a system working, though I'm sure it takes an experienced hand to get one working efficiently. Most of the info I read was quite old so I'm pretty excited to have someone in our midst that knows what's going on with this.

Thanks in advance for your contributions NoL!

I have no use for SS anymore personally, you know what I want tho. ;) I would think that budget SS would be the top seller around here. The issue is to get some cost effective cross-border shipping worked out. Maybe set up distro hub with a HWC member and drive some units across the border.

Hahaha last time I checked export from USA was free, and you guys had negligible importing. Else of course could work out with someone on the border.

I paid $105 customs when I received my SS from USA plus $150 shipping. Adding that much on top of unit cost could make em tough to sell.

So much for free trade huh?

Really? Damn.
I shipped a few the other week for $60-70, insured as gifts at $950. Receivers payed $2 in custom processing fees from UPS.
You have to either make sure they know its a gift, or its an RMA, basically tell them customs has been payed, its now going back for repairs after shipping damage.

I would be interested in 2 things: the water-chiller, and a budget SS, one capable of handling a Quad.
