The sourcing of specialty parts – the bane of running a small business with a small customer base. I have been having problems with several of my sources, including the source of the popular Munson Badge and Button viscous DT timers.
GREAT NEWS! – earlier this month, I received a phone call from Mr Munson – he was telling me he was returning my check as he no longer produces these – BUT!!!! – he transferred the operation to a VERY RELIABLE source.
I immediately called the new supplier and ordered 20 Badge and 20 Button timers – I received them this morning! Some things have necessarily changed: I am now only stocking the “Classic” version – these are good to about 6 minutes. I need to raise the price as the new source raised the base price. And I am no longer supplying the elastic cord with the timer – do yourself a favor and use a spring for consistent and reliable pull.
They will still come with 2 mounting screws. The Badge (larger) weighs about 1.1 grams and is now $20. The Button (smaller) weighs about 0.5 grams and is now $23. Find them both on my site under Accessories/DTs. I will probably be restocking these monthly. I can still get the “lite” versions (2 minutes) but they would be custom orders, as I will not be stocking them.
