Really? Come on guys, this stuff costs $$’s to produce and they may actually want to make some profit. If you’re doing small volume stuff (10’s-100’s vs 100,000’s - 1,000,000’s) it’s going to be a bit pricey. Frankly, to get the price to drop to half ($125), you’d probably have to get 10x-100x quantity increase. I know because I face the same thing when trying to produce my boards. Assembly will typically double the cost of the board + components.
I’ll likely be getting at least 3 of them (1 for the IBM 3174 and 2 for my Symbolics 3640 and possible another 2 for my other Symbolics 3640).
