    Doug,

    I just now paid for the drawings from PayPal. tried to download them but I found out I didn't have Dropbox installed. By the time I got everything set up I had used up my three attempts. What do I do Now? I really don't want to pay again.

    Thanks,
    Barry

    Barry - no problem at all, I've just reset your download count, so you can re-download the plans an additional 3 times. If you encounter any other download issues, just let me know and I'll make sure that you get the plans downloaded correctly to your computer.

    I just ordered and paid for this and got NOTHING. Just how complicated is it to send a 9 page PDF? I do not have Dropbox nor not does it say anywhere that I must have it. I'm really annoyed at this... If this is a necessity, it should say so up front. Otherwise, refund my money.

    Well--- I admit I have egg on my face. The plans did come through. For some reason, unknown to me, they registered in a different place in my downloads folder (new downloads have always come at the top of the list) so when I didn't see them I presumed they had not come through. Also, the first question on the page regarding Dropbox confused me as I don't have that and there was nothing said in the instructions about needing it.

    My apologies,

    Joe Puleo

    Hi Charron63
    Here is a copy of the Bill of Materials, I didn't bother putting a price list against every item, but they are mainly just short pieces of different materials and a few ball bearings, you can get pretty much everything from E-Bay, This is just a number but I would say in the neighborhood of $150.00 - $175.00

    Thanks for enquiring - rossbotics
