Thanks Le Chuck for the endorsement!

I have one order slot left for shipping on Friday Dec 28, otherwise the next batch of shipments will be the following week. If only I had a workshop full of little elves ;)

I am on schedule to ship out the first batch of orders on Friday. The elves have been busy over Christmas building mini SLGs ! :)

PS - In the photos of the mini SLG I've posted here and in my project thread, you'll notice there are not screws/posts on the VGA connectors. The screws that came packaged with the shells I am using were not thumbscrews (required small screwdriver) and I realized they were a pain to work with. To keep the cost of the mini SLG low, I decided not to try and source replacement thumbscrews.

Great to hear Yotsuya!

Thanks to everyone who has ordered, I've sold a total of 25 units so far. I have plenty of parts on hand to build more units!

To celebrate the start of 2013, I am offering the metalized plastic case version of the mini SLG for the same price as the black/beige model. This deal will last until Jan 7th, so if you like your VGA adapters shiny, now is your chance! :)

Awesome MameMaster!

Happy 2013 to everyone, I've been busy building mini SLGs and catching up on orders. And a few extra zzzzs as well, staying up late into the morning is not as easy as it used to be!

Hey CraftyMech, great work. I'm interested in making an order but I cannot PM you, maybe because I do not have enough posts I'm thinking.

I think you are right, it takes 5 posts I think before PMs are enabled for new members.

No worries though, you can also email me your request to: orders@craftymech.com

thanks!

Orders continue to be steady, and I'm shipping out packages every day. :)

I'm very methodical about the build process, and test each unit on multiple hardware setups, so it is taking a bit more time than I planned per unit. I'm also switching my supplier for the VGA connectors and that will increase my parts cost slightly.

So with the above in mind I wanted to give everyone a heads up that effective Jan 15th, the price of the mini SLG will increase to $18 + shipping for one unit (two-pack & three-pack deal prices will be adjusted accordingly). I think this is still a good deal, and strikes a better balance between the time I invest in each unit, and the price I'm asking.

Thanks to everyone who has supported this project so far!

Hi,
am I doing something wrong?

I just created an account and clicked on CM's profile to send a PM and the board is telling me I don't have access to that function?

You can't PM until you have a certain number of posts.
5 IIRC.

Got mine today, tossed one onto my 60 in 1 (which was running a VGA CRT monitor) and the picture looks much, much better.

Great news, glad the package arrived quickly. The mini SLG definitely improves an LCD display, but I think it really shines on a CRT. I have a neglected bartop project in the works that will use an uncased 14" CRT, and the 60-in-1 board display looks really nice through the SLG. :)

And if anyone wants the silver metalicized plastic shell, they will be a color choice until I run out of them for no extra cost. I have about 20 of those shiny cases left, so just let me know when you order if you would like one.

I'm thinking of just offering the black case after I run out of the beige and shiny cases. When offered a choice, most everyone picks black, or doesn't have a preference.

For something that isn't going to be seen, I don't think there is much point in offering 3 colors.

Most monitors today are black.  I can see people not wanting a beige connector on the back.

Does it have to be at the monitor end of the VGA cable or is it ok on the computer end?  Looking forward to getting mine although I'll have to do some disassembly to switch from DVI to VGA cabling.

You could install the mini either way, but I would recommend installing at the source end. If for no other reason than to be connected directly to the VGA signal, so any cabling problems/interence won't effect the performance of the unit.

Thanks, Yotsuya! And thanks to everyone who has ordered, I've built and shipped nearly 50 units. I believe in simple gadgets that just get the job done, so I've been excited to hear the enthusiastic feedback.

Just a reminder that the price for the mini is increasing by $3 after today. The new price for a single unit will be $18 + shipping (the 2-pack and 3-pack deal prices will be updated accordingly). I'll update the first post in the thread with the new price list tomorrow. The small increase strikes a better balance between the time & cost to build and test each unit, and the selling price.

Thanks to everyone who has supported this project so far!

No problem Malenko, send me a PM with your email address and I'll honor the $18 shipped price.

I'm about to update the price list in the first post of this thread, so you are just in time :)

Forgive me for posting this question in both threads:

I use a 24" LCD to fool around with MAME and other emulators.  However, the same monitor is also used for my home server.  I'm assuming from what you are saying that when the PC sends a native 1920x1200 signal, the SLG won't work.  But if I start up an emulator, say MAME for example, and set the config for MAME to start up a game at 640x480, it will work?  That way the scanlines only appear when emulation is started?

Also, will the SLG still work with an HDMI to VGA adapter?

Thanks!

Hey Joe, you are correct that if MAME sets the VGA resolution to 640x480 (or 1024x768), then the mini SLG will add scanlines to the image. If you have a MAME front-end and don't want scanlines for those screens, just run the front-end at a higher resolution than 1024x768.

I have not tested a mini SLG with a HDMI video card w/ VGA adapter, but as long as the adapter puts out a standard VGA signal, then scanlines should be added to the image (provided the resolution is compatible as mentioned above). However, depending on the quality of the adapter, it is possible there may be some interference in the signal that would impact the mini SLGs performance. For best results I always recommend hooking the mini SLG directly to the video source, running at 640x480 resolution.
