I would be the happiest person in this entire discussion if a DIY option was added. I just get so much joy out of soldering my own stuff.

if you want diy, go to mouser and get all the diodes, resistors and good caps, than buy the pcb from jds or somewhere else. i'm sure you will save a few bucks and get it way faster than doing the drop. you can get all the parts number from nwavguy material list.

I looked into that and it ends up being $10 more to DIY it. The case, power supply, and PCB from JDSLabs is $57, plus about $35 for the internal electronic bits from mouser. I might just do it anyway.

not sure what you did wrong, but even with a power supply from mouser with all the parts, it only came out 40.33 total. and take the case, front plate and the pcb from jdslabs for 28 total. of course, the shipping is excluded but still not bad if you want to diy for cheap. if you can build your own case, it will only cost you 46.33 (mouser parts and pcb form jdslabs) plus shipping and the cost of the material choice for the case. so really not bad at all.
