Still a fair amount of stuff for sale, free shipping on orders over $19. Prices look unchanged from what I saw in-store at the end.

Not sure what "Returns are always free" at the top means.

  • Just ordered some tips for the solder station I paid < $30.00 when the stores closed. Don't know who made this for them, but not so good deal if tips go away with RS....... Bargain insurance i guess.

  • That Makeblock kit infiltrates my monitor a lot lately. Good thing it's sold out, I don't really need the electronics it comes with anyway.

    I need a company that sells mills and drill presses to go out of business. It would be nice to be able to fabricate small parts like that :)

  • I got the Makeblock kit the first time they went out of business. It's really well done and the ultimate kit had an extra motor driver so it can be used with a Propeller.

    Those Makebot prices are dynamite compared elsewhere. But if they are sold out online, why are they even listing them, Shacky?
