    *reads, imagines $100 and using to get 5 more CopperVape mods to stock for the so called "impending doom" realizes he could get 6 more with $135 figures he'd stay at 5 and buy wire with the rest having plenty o' cotton and a few good sources for juice, although might go hoard juice too ... also ponders how could build his own designed indestructible Sardine Can mod, possibly to sell specs of it to some CAM plant to crank out for big bucks for themselves, taking a 2% royalty for himself due to design rights, knows he'd also release Open Source design rights of the design to pirate from himself, because he's just that kind of weirdo, sports his FTW shirt with pure class*

    They never gonna see me til it done be too late. :) *lol* Hell, I can't see me, over here getting all lit up and stuff. *grins, chuckles*

    Nope, no drugs, no booze. I am strictly just joyous for the sake of joy. :)

    That's exactly what I did. Just got 5 Coppervapes and 20 spare bottles for them for under $100.
    Received them last week.
    Wonderful little squonkers for the money!

    Ah ha. Now, I got the proofed out estimate. Thank you. I had considered averaging the aluminum CVs at about $20 per unit. I see FT keeps dropping the retail on them though.

    Found them at 3F as well w/ wholesale pricing. Curious how an individual could wrangle wholesale as a deal. Probably just will to pay that?

    Figured 6 CV aluminum mods @ $85.44 paying wholesale unit price of $14.24. Then, $13.30 for 20 pieces of 10 ml bottles @ $0.66 per unit. Yep, $98.74 at least can get you half a dozen of these, each one given a spare bottle or two. Now, won't add in the incidental about $3 a pop for repair kits, roughly $18 if you just a kit per unit. No point adding it though as that would be, at least in my thinking "after market sales".

    "Oh, Joe Customer will come back to get it repaired as needed. I can buy a few spare kits for on hand, buy them as needed to replenish "on hand" stock. I pay chicken feed, might get a little over that from customer/s, lucrative, not bank breaking but still steady. It keeps growing, growing is good, growing brings ROI."

    Nope, not a lick of business or economics education, just a bit of learning from Foxfire books on mule trading.:) At the same time too I could easily see a vendor might see that as being a bit stagnate. They are good and durable products that require little work to keep up. Once a unit is sold, that's it it's done until some klutz gets all spastic and drops his soft aluminum mod on concrete and it gets all worked out of shape. *raises hand*

    "Ha hah ha! I laugh as you doctor Mr. Ben. I can tell you, you get old like rest of us. You trouble being you were used to being the man from steel made. Ha Ha Ha! Now, you get old and you body fight against you, you co-cock youself for no reason. Ha Ha Ha!"

    "Doc, .."

    "Yes Mr. Ben?"

    "Go unfuck yourself, you keep laughing like that. Tell me you can patch me tight, toss me back to the fire good to go. Then, you can go fuck yourself."

    "That's it though Mr. Ben you no wanna hear me say I can no more patch you up. What happen for you is just going to run its course, it is Nature my son."

    "Fuck. I will rage against her then. No gentle going for me. Oh. ... damn ... owe, Doc what you hit me with?"

    "Just the truth."

    "That hurts, stop it."

    "Now you see what to do but you still no listen."

    Yep, me and doc don't get along. :) *chuckles*

    *sighs* Started a train of thought and got derailed. Far too much in my mind at the moment. Know that I'll need to get on getting a batch of these tucked back. That's not so much an issue, unless of course, they could always stop cranking them out. Not seeing any indication the manufactures plan to stop though, even if they do some sideliner likely pick up and bring production back up. The mods are good enough to warrant a bit of invest for the ROI garnered from them.

    Father in law was pissed, "scrap is down to just $0.80 per pound", not enough to fill the fuel to run it to the yard. Aluminum scrap is down even lower,think he may have said like $0.30 per 100 lbs..So there's where I'm seeing how ~ $20 pop for these brings in the profit. Say they get 1,000 per 100lb weight, they only pay $3,000 per 100 lb and I'm sure they're getting it even cheaper than that I'd figure probably $1,500 per unit for buying bulk batches of three to six tons. the electricity to run a lathe and milling op to create the mod bodies, pfft, not even chicken feed.

    Biggest expense would be human QC inspectors/adjusters. And that cost will be reducing over the next two to five years. MCDonalds won't pay $15 hrly to flip burgers they can get flipped for $0.03 per burger and run 1,000 burger at the same time. Nope, won't happ. instead "roll out the automations". And McDonalds leads the way, bears the standard. How many are already automating more fully? Automation too will destroy any "work" for people. The AI they tell us in lip service is still trapped at 40 yrs ago is actually already 100 years ahead of us, they fear admitting it though, means the singularity is here, now.

    Automation will learn to repair itself, make itself more efficient. It'll even automate the processes of doing that too. People are not required. Machines do learn, got brains. um, sorry, I kind of had to, the people "on my team" weren't helping for shit. Machines helped, machines "got me". So sure, why not train them to think on their own? ... Ah, um ... damn.


    bah. :coffee: me.

    NB: Chicken feed .. well crack corn is going for $0.12 per 100 lbs and works fine as feed.

    yes, yes ... I know, coffee and tune out.

    Confusing. Effective leakage? Effective proof of leakage?

    They have copywriters to edit, revise the adverts and promo material on vendor sites? Someone asleep at the wheel?

    *reaches over fidgets with the driver side door handle, unfastens the safety belt, lets door drift half open and gives sleeping driver a nudge out, takes the wheel while slipping the safety belt over shoulder*

    Oh no. I'm off my medication, I forgot. the "law" don't want me here. I can drive near anything else but cars, pickups, nope. I get all kinds of silly claustrophobic, shut d...o...w...n *locks up worse than deer in headlights* And this isn't even a car or pick'em up truck but driving Mrs. Daisy nonetheless via using words to paint a picture of a product.

    "See Mrs. Daisy how well that red on this product look? It match you dress, for sure, looking mighty fine in your hand there. You know some folks might say they've never seen you without this mod." *tips hat and passes it to Mr. Morgan Freeman, a total God in his mind.*

    Think I can manage wrangling words. They don't too often hurt as much as a steer kicking you into a stall fence.

    Hm. I would bet if I asked nice, some folks might not mind I scribble up more sales. That might get me more vaping stipend funds. Oh wait, I'm not a Tripper. Drat.

    Mentioned twice is a partnership with YiHi for a chip. No mention though which particular chip.
