Title: I have 7 Digitizer II pads
Post by: gmanx on October 08, 2007, 01:25:15 PM
I used to work at an animation house which closed recently. There are 7 12" square wacom digitizer II pads there (which I've been cleared to sell). There are only three pens though, in varying states of repair.

I checked the wacom site, and they no longer sell spare pens for these models. I've had some success using a pen from a pen-partner tablet on these digitizers though.

Would these old pads be useful to anyone here?? I'm in the UK.

Any idea of a price?

Yes!

£25 for pad and pen, £15 for just the pad. This includes the power adapter and serial cables but not postage - which I'll have to figure out. There are three pens, but I'll have to check each one, and each pad, to make sure they're functional.

Spare pens are available from Wacom US I think, and coolgraphicstuff (http://www.coolgraphicstuff.com/pre-intuos-series-wacom-tablets-parts-and-accessories-c-27.html)

I'll post again (probably tomorrow) with details and photos of each pad - rated best to worst according to condition and 'completeness'.

These pads are Old Skool digitizer II models, serial port based and powered by an adapter with a two-pin plug on the end.

Model number is UD-1212-R.

Here they are.

I've brought them all home to test each lot of pad/pen/cables to group together complete sets. Some are really grubby, so I'll have to get my marigolds out. :(

Yeah!

I would also be interested in 1 or 2 (to be on the safe side) + 1 pen.

Hi all, and thanks for the responses!! If you cal all let me know where you are in the world (pm me if preferred) I'll work out some shipping costs.


Title: Re: I have 7 Digitizer II pads
Post by: Drewid on October 11, 2007, 12:12:41 PM
I'll nab a penless one seeing as I have a spare.

Cool!

I just checked with UK Royal Mail and postage for each tablet (2.5kg) is around £8.70 for recorded delivery - I'll confirm that once I get the first one wrapped and boxed up. I just have to find a source for boxes big enough to pack them in.

I'll get back to those requiring overseas postage as soon as I can get to a courier.

If there are any left, I might be interested in picking one up. I'm in the US of A though, so shipping costs may be too prohibitively high.

Cheers mate,

No probs AndreZX, I'll add you to the list of overseas enquiries I'm making at the post office in the morning.

I'd welcome any suggestions for payment options, but since I'm selling these on behalf of 'Island Studios' (a movie studio here on the Isle of Man) I'd ideally like a cheque payable to Island Studios. When I receive the cheque, I'll post out the tablet.... Unless anyone has a better idea?

I have a paypal account if people would rather I use that.

Either way we're going to have to get around the 'trust' issues implicit in such transactions.

Okay, I've just got back from the Post Office.

UK special next-day delivery = £9.25

Netherlands (2-3 days) = £24.10

US (two weeks) = £40.30

Australia airmail (8-12 days) =£48.50

Any extra weight due to packaging, I will cover any additional postage.

I've now just got to find boxes big and strong enough to pack them in (should have some info this afternoon).

So far - 5 are taken - so there's 2 left!

[UPDATE] 6 taken - 1 left (no pens left)

Of course - that's if everyone actually goes through, if there are any non-takers I'll put the tablets back in this thread.

Hi Guys - sorry if progress is a bit slow, I've had a busy week at work. Updates soon.


Title: Re: I have 7 Digitizer II pads
Post by: gmanx on October 28, 2007, 06:14:01 PM
Update!!!

I'm ready to start shipping to those who expressed an interest - if they're still wanting!!

Sorry, I've been very busy (and playing portal.. :))

I got boxes and started to cut them to fit ('scuse pics - crappy phone-cam):

 (http://www.gmanx.com/album/LHA/DrewPack.jpg)

..which is why my front room looks like a warehouse:

(http://www.gmanx.com/album/LHA/WacomCentral.jpg)

Each person gets a pad, power adapter, serial cable, puck and pen-rest. Three of you get pens too. W00t!

I'll be PM'ing the potential recipients with final costs, and details of my paypal account and, as long as it's all ticketty boo - I can start posting them.

Hey,

How many of these have you got left? And are they all fully tested? If I knew I could pick up a pen for definate somewhere (if you've none left) then I'd most likely be interested (in the UK btw). Thanks

Have you tried UPS Saver? They will probably be a lot cheaper.
