Our machine shop has also been re-located as part of the business move to Rugby, we anticipate the machines will be operational around mid December. Orders placed which include custom bore sizes and tapped holes will be processed as soon as the machines are spinning again.
Sparkfun Ordering Information
Rather than have all Sparkfun Special Order products in their own 'Sparkfun' category, we are in the process of moving them into our main product categories
We detail around 2,000 Sparkfun on the Technobots website. We simply cannot stock all of them within the UK but as we receive regular deliveries from the US, we are making the virtually the entire Sparkfun product range available. You may have to wait up to 14 days for dispatch from the UK but this could still be quicker than waiting for Airmail if you were to order on Sparkfun direct. If our Part No. begins with 8000- or 8001- then it is a special order, otherwise it is a normal stock line for us. Please note that the pricing of special order products from the US are subject to more frequent change due to fluctuations of the $/£ exchange rate.
Please be aware that Sparkfun also market products from other manufacturers such as Pololu, Arduino, PICAXE etc, this means that you may well find the same product elsewhere within the Technobots range at lower cost and frequently in stock for normal dispatch.
Sparkfun are not always able to offer their distributors full trade pricing on every product but rather than not make them available from Technobots, we have included them but our price reflects the lower distributor discount pricing.
We have included a direct link to the Sparkfun website for every special order product so you can check pricing within the US as well as stock availability.
We take care of all importing duty costs, transport costs and paperwork thus making the purchase of Sparkfun products especially easy for our EU customers.
We shall also be including quantity bulk buying price breaks in due course but equally we are happy to provide a written quotation on request.
Important, if your order contains a mix of stock items and Sparkfun Special Order products, we may at our discretion hold your entire order until the special order items are available. If you need the stock items sooner, we recommend that you place two orders, one for stock items and one for the special order items.
