The BOM cost alone for the product is around 23USD, which is rather expensive. I order genuine parts from 1st party distributors in Canada, which in this case includes Omron switches, solid-state relays and the ESP32. I did not go cheap on this as owners of Hakko's are likely looking for quality components throughout. The rest includes my labor costs to assembly, flash and test the unit. As it is open sourced, you are welcome to build your own! I am always looking for ways to shave off BOM costs and pass savings to customers.
As the BOM costs are quite high, I will be keeping a limited number of parts on hand, and will assemble them as when ordered.
