Maybe make them out of plastic or something, has to be a few who have access to machines that could clone 500 of them.

$20 per tray could bring in some dough :idea:

I am a bit out of touch with Die making costs these days,my guess would be that the die cost would be $4000 to $6000,setting this die up on an injection moulding machine,another $1000,A run of 500 would be a couple of hours,then sticking on the reflector,packaging etc,then some profit,worry about copywright etc---- so $20 each for a thousand run maybe on,the question is would you put $8000 up front on a scheme like this? better to spend it on a die for making clothes pegs,run the die for a couple of weeks-----

The tray could be fabricated fom plastic sheet,lower tooling,but lots of labour,costly stuff this labour.

My guess is that someone in Asia will take the risk,there are cloned versions of the Epson tray available on the web.

I could make myself and test them and then sell them if anybody wants.

I could use cardboard or plastic or whatever is requested.

Figure $10 for my time and effort per tray.
