How to Get Your Own Printer!

To all WOOFers,

It's the time many of you have been waiting for. I have priced out parts for the Grawmet. By doing a group order we can get the price down to $300. This gets you a box with all the parts inside ready to be assembled. The box will even have your name on it so you'll know it's yours.

Because we want to get rocking and rolling soon I must have the money by 5:00 pm on Friday (26 OCT). Cash or check is fine. The sooner you have your money turned in the better! I am trying to negotiate bulk discounts with the vendors and if I can specify how large our order will be then I have more leverage to save us more money. If I am able to save us a significant amount through bulk discounts then you guys get the savings returned to you. I hope that's incentive!

Next week if I'm on campus and not in class I will be in the work room with the door open. Come in and turn in your money. I'm the only one who will be taking money for this. Kits will be assembled on a first paid, first served basis. So if your money is in first thing Monday you will be in the first wave of kits. If you wait until last thing on Friday, you could potentially wait a while if there are problems (like back orders and the like). I hope that's even more incentive to get your money in soon. 

If you won't have the money turned in until later in the week, but know for certain that you will be joining the order please email me so I get a more accurate count of how many people will be participating in the order. To be clear: that doesn't get you in the order queue any earlier. It just helps me as I negotiate with vendors for price breaks. You will be placed in the order queue when your money is turned in.

If for some reason you are unable to muster up the $300 by Friday we will host other group orders in the future that you should be able to get in on.

If there are any questions please feel free to email me. Put the subject [Grawmet Order] in the subject line so I can identify it right away. My email is I look forward to facilitating this group order. And as always: don't forget to be awesome.
