Regarding the cost of making them here - the BOM comes out to only US$3.50 for the parts and $4.28 for the board (quantity 20 boards, 1 week delivery) for 20 boards and sets of parts. The IR diode is only $0.41; the crystal and capacitors are $0.20 (again, quantity of 20). So, all told, that would be just over $4 for everything plus envelope, postage and all.

With all the terrific contributions of others, I would only charge the item costs. My time is free (and worth every penny!). But yes, I've done microelectronic work for decades.

(0.25mm blue wire modification to an aerospace board shown with 0402 resistors and 0.09mm wire).

If you still have 60 bare boards, we may not need more for a while (34 responses to your survey). But they can definitely be made here if needed.

Any recommendations on how I can help going forward? Again, my thanks to all!

Hi Jim,

Are those mouser prices? That is better than I can get here. But maybe the euro prices are not as good and also I have to pay 19% tax on top as well.
So I guess, you might as well go ahead and order.
My intention was to put the design into the public domain, so you are free to set whatever price you like for the boards. However as they are a bit of work to solder and test I would probably ad a small amount on top of your costs.
Would supplying the European market be feasible for you as well? If so, it would probably make sense if I would offer kits for those who still would want to solder themselfs and you offer the populated and tested boards. I would have to check if I can offer the kits cheaper than you can offer the complete boards. I think parts are at about €4, worldwide shipping plus envelope is about €2 and the boards I am not sure about anymore. But I guess I could at least match your price for the pouplated boards if I consider that they would just be stowed away in a box otherwise...

Is the $4.28 for 20 boards? So $0.21 per board? That is a really good price!

Cheers,
Harald
