You know, that's the sort of thing that should have been blindingly obvious to us, but that never crossed our minds. Keep them coming!
+1 for cufflinks! Would love a pair.
Oh nice, never have seen that page.
I like that. There's a pi sticker on my luggage to help spot it on the conveyor belt when flying. A bit of a niche use case, but a tag like the one you linked would be nice.
OT because PM not available.

I drill them out to 3mm anyway, been doing that for 6 years on Pi'sPlease do something about "M2.5" standoffs market availability. (And perhaps try M3 holes in the next design...)
The small ones are perfect for cables, I use these mainly for USB cables.ShiftPlusOne wrote: ↑Fri Jul 20, 2018 11:45 amI like that. There's a pi sticker on my luggage to help spot it on the conveyor belt when flying. A bit of a niche use case, but a tag like the one you linked would be nice.
I need to be careful not to fly on the same plane as you; I'm using the same method to ID my bags! (I used to have a frozen custard sticker too, but it fell off.)
Pimoroni sell some standoff (and swagstore is through them iirc)epoch1970 wrote: ↑Fri Jul 20, 2018 11:40 amOT
This is not swag, but I will say here I had quite a hard time finding standoffs and screws to adapt a Pi into a case (or Pi + Hat).
- You chose an imperial size for the standoff and screws, "M3" is too big and "M2" is really tiny
- The exact height to use for a HAT is also somewhere between 2 metric values (11 and 12 mil. ?)
- Existing kits branded "for the Pi" are IMHO pure extortion, at something like 1€+ per standoff. At that price, you can buy a 4-standoff kit and that's all.
I was seriously looking at the price of accessories I needed to add to a Pi. I had to fight all the way to China and buy a bag of 50 M2 brass (?) standoffs of the approximate correct height, just in order to spend less per unit on feet and spacers than on the SD card...
I needed to buy for 10 Pis, at 8 standoffs per unit a bag of 50 standoffs was fine. I suppose 25 (up to 6 Pis) would be a more appropriate quantity in most cases.

EDIT: replying here to Ernst who posted below (thanks!), because I don't want to further derail the thread: that kit has an ok price, but i. shipping cost not ok, ii. the number of standoffs of a height actually useful on a Pi is much lower than it would seem if you need to attach a HAT. 120 pieces in the kit, only 10-20 pieces of useful height.
