iSight adapater for tripods with threaded sled

    I have had manufactured a threaded steel disk that enables you to mount your
    iSight to a threaded tripod sled. You can affix the Apple plastic mount to
    the disk and the disk to the sled; or you can use the disk alone and attach
    the iSight magnetic base.

    I have them for sale at eBay item 160404303393, with several photos of
    various configurations. Its brutally simple design affords many applications.
    And for those who care, I could have had them made in China for cheap, but
    used a small Midwest machine shop instead.

    You're a real patriot, but I think you are FOS. IOW's, a liar. You could
    have gotten them 70% cheaper from the Chinks and they would have thrown
    Chrome Plating in.

    Did you even query them? They only run very high volumes, not a dozen or
    two.

    You know, zara, one quality of liars is that they seldom trust others, so I
    understand where you're coming from. Is this enough Chinese quotes you?

    So when you spouted, "And for those who care, I could have had them made in
    China for cheap, but used a small Midwest machine shop instead.", you
    blatantly lied.

    All your quotation requests were denied.

    You are a contemptible little creep.

    It's hard to comprehend what a pathetic sniveling person you must be in
    person. You know nothing of the mfg.com website and their process, yet you
    pretend that you do, and, of course, you are wrong as always. That was ME
    declining THEIR quotes. Here is one of the many Chinese quotes I passed on:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v260/thefamilyguy/quote2.gif

    The screen shot I posted earlier clearly shows those line items as quotes,
    not requests for quotes. If you knew anything about manufacturing or even
    basic business you would know that the quotes comes from the vendors.

    I can't wait to hear how you wiggle like a maggot out of this one. You need
    some testosterone treatments so that one day, perhaps by age 12, you will be
    man enough to say you're sorry.

    You're a fucking liar.

    Remember this:

    "You know, zara, one quality of liars is that they seldom trust others, so I
    understand where you're coming from. Is this enough Chinese quotes you?"
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v260/thefamilyguy/quotes.gif

    Looks like fifteen companies declined to quote. Now you're trying to
    reverse course.

    You are a fucking worm.

    BTW, Asshole. Your "quote" show that the chinks wanted $9.90 ea.

    If you're selling them for six, how were they "cheaper" than a US machine
    shop.

    You are a seriously stupid ****. And a real patriot.

    You mean the one that clearly shows all the companies that quoted on his

    other than the fact that the quote you showed from a chinese
    manufacturer appears to be more expensive, am i seeing that the item
    is just a threaded round disk? why would anyone send this out to a
    machine shop?

    I had some Chinese quotes for less than CAD Tool of Michigan. I picked an
    expensive Chinese shop to show you were way wrong about them being cheaper,
    too. And I thought my Chinese shops refused my quotes?

    I searched all over for any company selling custom things like thick washers.
    Many could make one thicker and add some threads, or larger diameter but not
    that thick, but none of that specific size.

    No, I really did want you to see all the QUOTES I didn't accept. Hey, you
    want to see an example of e-mails I received with bad Chinese-to-English
    grammar asking for my business? See in the upper right? 15 of 30? These guys
    were begging for my tiny order.

    Golly, Ed.

    What do you suppose you call most people who have drill presses and taps?

    And where do you buy "metal disks"?

    golly gee alan, certainly most people with a drill press do not fall
    into the category of machine shop. :p but i asked why you would send
    this out to a machine shop (i.e. the insinuation is doing this
    yourself w/ a press and tap- you're talking about something on the
    order of $100 to set up).

    > And where do you buy "metal disks"?


    strangely enough, i'd go to a metal supply house instead not a machine
    shop. and if they couldn't source disks, i'd buy round stock and a
    cutoff wheel, putting me in at $200 for tools. and i still wouldn't
    be a machine shop, and no normal person would confuse me for one.
    d'uh. :D
