I'm more than willing to solder one up for you and post it to you afterwards - PM me if you want to go ahead.
Or maybe state the nearest town to you and maybe someone else would come round and do it at your house :)

BTW - Soldering? - that's when you glue the components together with a flour and water paste - yes? :)

Well if you can get the parts I could put it together for you.

Then again depends where you are

I personally prefer soldered connections.

You could go along to your local maker space or hackerspace. I'm sure the people there would be glad to help you out.

You can find your local space here:
