I guess this has been the realization of the MANY suggested Jobo upgrade\clone\DIY projects that came and went over the years.

The bottom line is that in essence the existing Jobo system works, albeit with its inherent flaws, which over time have all gotten workarounds of various levels of creativity.

BTW - The numbers you mention above, even without the shipping are close to the actual cost of upgrading a CPP2 with Jobo parts to start out with.

It still is a nice idea and perhaps one day it will come to fruition.
