Yes, someone else mentioned this to me &, no, I haven't been contacted./\/\/\/ wrote: ↑Thu Dec 10, 2020 6:37 pmSome Good Samaritan on Reverb has taken it upon himself to sell Tom’s travel jig design for $125 + shipping.
Nothing wrong with charging for laser cutting services but... that price seems steep for selling a laser cut of a free template. (Just a guess but) likely without consulting Tom for permission to do so...?
I'm not entirely against it in a small scale way (don't think there's scope in my sphere to be larger scale ), though obviously aware how some larger open projects of others have been treated. The reasons I put them out were so I wouldn't have to oversee the work, figure shipping of awkward shapes and to keep prices low. For example, I think I paid c.£20 for such a set from the laser shop down the road - I certainly see that as a very reasonable cost & have taken quite a few designs down to that shop.
The price for someone else to undertake making such things is hard for me to quantify. In some ways I see it as an advert saying that the reverb seller can offer a service making these for people who can't DIY (/find a shop) & charges accordingly for such a service - it is for anyone interested to decide whether what is being charged is reasonable.
