Darn you beat me to it!

Yeah that one Reflow machine is roughly $30K from what I could find after a quick search.

No idea as to how much the pick and place or other machines are.  Guessing at least as expensive.

Well that's good then as they should be able to pump out pieces much faster once they get up to training and speed in learning the new equipment.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

Reflow machines are just glorified ovens. (not really incredibly special IMHO).

Pick and place machines are much more complicated and typically a lot more expensive. But of course you pay heavily for performance of these machines (how many reels or strips of parts you can load into it, how many arms there are, how fast the arm moves, the precision of the placement, etc.)

Got the newsletter in my inbox as well.  Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed since all the images shown were examples and none from their facility.  Even if they took some "in-the-works" shots.. it would be more reassuring than the current newsletter.

Indeed. Look at the pictures EXIF data:

  • The first one is dated on 2009
  • The third one says "Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.M2b"

Why a picture "$ (KGrHqV,! l0F! hHkmETFBQYJ, 63i0w ~ ~ 60_3.jpg" is downloaded from ebay?
This is not a photo taken by BFL just downloaded from ebay. It is easy to check, type in google "http://i.ebayimg.com/00/$"
   $(KGrHqV,!l0F!h.......  Its ebay file naming.





I found it yet :  "Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.M2b"

"BFL plan B"

...

!

I admit that the ESSEMTEC one cheated me, I tought it be authentic.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

I'm not sure if you're trolling or not but those are more crucial for assembly and inspection than the assembly machines...

I think it has already been pointed out that these picture are not actually at their facility though Sad

Or BFL plan C - take the money and run away  Wink

They produce invisible ASIC using invisible production equipment. It is a pity that people do not pay invisible money.

Here is a recently completed auction of the Essemtec reflow oven pictured.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ESSEMTEC-RO300FC-REFLOW-OVEN-/320989507198?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4abc772e7e

Is there any way BFL could prove they won the auction?
