Yeah I saw you picked up those from Nick. You'd be a good candidate for a tower upgrade as long as you're doing such work anyway, and I don't think you got a tower floor at all with your set.
I do sell direct to other countries, more often than to the US, but I've avoided setting up a shopping cart for the Robbe upgrade because I retail them for less than Pandan and Dream-Arts, and I don't charge for shipping. I don't want to compete with them, but if I'm missing sales in general I guess it's the only thing to do.
I don't suppose you're flying over for the regatta, but I'll offer some 'tradeshow pricing' at the show for the VIIB, and also presell out of the first batch of this VIIC upgrade which will be a week or maybe two away from production. I've ordered more brass and it should be here early next week.
I'm also going to have some pieces of film and brass at the table, so people can get a better handle on how photoetch is done practically. I wanted to have a little display on how you could do it yourself as well, but I didn't think it would be a good idea to break out the ferric chloride and start making a mess.
