    As some of you already know, I've had to close PureCoils. But, I still have access to my wholesale accounts with many manufacturers and distributors. So I figured if anyone is interested in any group buys, I can get most items relatively inexpensive. Some wholesalers have minimums, while others do not. So, if anyone is interested I'd be happy to save you guys a few dollars.

    It'd probably be best to have at least 5 people per buy (depending on the item), so let me know what you're interested in and I'll see if I can still get it. I'll post a new thread for each group buy if/when there's an interest in a specific item. I can also combine various items to meet the MOQ of some accounts.

    All items will be sold at cost plus shipping. So if an item costs $50 wholesale and we have 10 people interested, that's $500 cost. Shipping to me may be around $35 (more or less, depending on weight), so your cost would be $53.50 plus shipping from me to you. I may add a small fee (maybe around $5) just to cover my time and shipping materials.

    So let me know what you're interested in and I'll see what I can do.

    Sounds wonderful! Now all we need is for decent mods and atties to pop-up ;-)

    I used to do group buys here a couple years ago, but had to stop because it was a conflict with the VU Vendor rules. Now that I'm no longer a VU Vendor, we can start doing this again.

    Groovy.. I'd seen some old[er] threads that had mentioned them - just not for a year or so. (It may well be where my vt133's were sourced at some time, and I know my R91 was - long ago - like the naughtyfun mod for the Terminator/Nautilus ;-)

    Thanks Chef. I'd be interested in another yihi sxmini sl if a group buy pops up and the price is right.

    Thank you.
    Cool. I'll look into it and see what kind of price I can get.

    Chef, you are a gentleman and a scholar, this is so cool of you to use your time and connections to help the VU. I truly believe we are getting a bargain with the $5.00 fee. I'd like to see what kind of price we could get on some SX Mini mods. Thank's again for your suggestion Chef.

    The Squids I can get directly from Eric, and the Yihis I'll probably need to get through a distributor.

    I may be able to get the SXs directly from Yihi - I had a wholesale account there, but never used it. Because PureCoils is shut down, they may not sell to me now. Plus, they have a MOQ of 20 units.

    I'd rather have the Detonator (silver) honestly.

    Squid is out of stock, but there a 2 silver left at my distributor. They also have 3 black, and 5 gunmetal in stock as of right now. The price is $67.50 shipped to you. I'll start a thread right now.

    EDIT: The thread is http://vapingunderground.com/threads/group-buy-squid-detonator-mod.455569/

    If there's any additional interest, I'll start the group buy.

    Thanks for the response, but those aren't feasible. When you add in shipping to me, then shipping to you, plus $5 for my time and shipping materials, then it's not worth the inflated price of about $40-$45

    I could get it a bit cheaper if there were more than just yours - it'll knock down the shipping price to me per unit.

    The retail price of say, the 25mm single coil is:
    48 + 12 ship = 60
    If shipped direct to Ca, add 5 for 65.
    The 28mm is $2 more.
    So if closer to 40, not bad.

    Oh, California tax is about $4.50. I don't know about shipping to Canada. Shipping to me here in Az is 12-13$ so my cost from them for the 25mm would be $60.20 shipped. If I lived in Calif. - $5 more for tax. So Calif buyers from you might avoid that $5...
