View Full Version : [News/Announcement] Calling all Tinkerers and Packrats! Random Grab Bags!

02-03-2009, 04:24 PM
We’re offering a limited time only Grab Bag of random parts (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5933-Random-Grab-Bag.aspx?a=blog), which is sure to make the geek and packrat in all of us cry out in glee.

We estimate the retail value on the parts included in this Grab Bag at over $100!

We’ve been cleaning house around here, moving out older products bringing in new… and during this spring cleaning we realized we were ending up with a large supply of very cool little gizmos and random parts. Rather than try and sell it piece by piece, we figured it would be fun to divide it all up evenly (based on value) into 30 Random Grab Bags!

Now these Grab Bags are a dream come true for tinkerers and experimenters alike. Since these parts were just going to gather dust, we figured we would mark them down to an insanely low price to get rid of them ASAP. We’re going to keep the contents a mystery as that’s half the fun of a Random Grab Gag… but I will say that all of them have at least $20 worth of aluminum parts alone.

The last time we did something like this these Grab Bags flew off the shelves, so get them while they last. You don’t find deals like this very often! We only have 30 Grab Bags available (http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5933-Random-Grab-Bag.aspx?a=blog) and that is it.

I was seriously giddy putting these things together, really a fantastic deal. Some of the stuff in these is worth $10-20 alone, and there's a lot of stuff in them...

02-06-2009, 02:54 PM
Yup, I just got reports that a few other people received theirs and are quite happy with the contents :D

02-06-2009, 04:20 PM
This was like the deal of the century. I'm really pleased here!

02-06-2009, 04:38 PM
I will add in. Great value :D Some great parts, some odd parts, some scratch your head parts :P but overall great value!

Now I am going to have to order a whole bunch more aluminum!

By the way, anyone know where to get the little "knobs" for the mini joysticks?

Sure, why do you all get yours a week a head of me?!? [pout]
