Ok, I don't mean to put a hamper on things, but I checked out the site and they only sell borosilicate glass in thicknesses between .2mm and 1.1mm. I would guess that we need glass that's at least 2mm thick in order to make sure its got some strength and won't shatter. Also its $88.60 for a 4.173 x 17.323 Inch piece, so I'm wondering where the $6 per sheet has come from.

Do we have any feedback from this company about strength and cost that needs to be known?

I had called them for a quote earlier in the year for 8x8x1/8" pieces. They sell the glass in thicknesses up to 16mm, http://howardglassco.thomasnet.com/view ... &forward=1

I received my MK2 from azvintagecars today. The quality looks great and it was carefully packaged. It says made in USA. Not bad for $24.50 imho.

I am very interested in picking up some glass in a group order.

I think a lot of people would have helped you get a group order going for the heated beds as well man. That's why this thread was started, ya know?

Sorry to hijack your thread guys. I was anxious to get the major parts ordered, so I went ahead and grabbed one. Since the seller does group discounts, and we couldn't be sure about the quality until someone picked one up, so I thought the results would be relevant. $24.50 shipped for an American manufactured-and-sold MK2 seems like a great deal to me, and the prices drop as the quantity increases. If anyone is interested, I can bring it down to the space this week so you guys can take a look at it.

No problem, where should we go from here?

Shannon seems to have a line on the glass, but we need $100 minimum, so who's in for that? $6 a sheet is a great deal but it would take almost 20 sheets to make the order. (I'm in for 3 btw...)

Joel has a pcb for us to check out at the next meetups, so maybe we can do something with that ebay seller if it looks good?
