    Awesome job, but it is a bit of a tease to show your talent and then not be willing to help out the poor souls that don't have your talent or access to your tools.:up:

    Sorry Steve, it would be expensive to make with out a CNC machine. And we a very limited supply of aluminum, that's why most of the stuff I've been making for my bike has been out of brass, and it take forever to polish the machine marks out of brass.

    No shortage that I know of, we just don't keep any in stock. We build mining equipment, and there's nothing light weight on them.

    I'm curious. Has anybody considered having these types of things printed (3D printer)? Somebody would have to make the first one of each design, but then you could scan it in & print off reproductions at will.

    Am I wrong to say you can't print aluminum, but that plastic kind of thing

    Aluminum printers have Ben around for
    Soft metal printers have been available for a number of years now.
    Jay Leno has been utilizing one for over a decade to make parts for his rare car collection.
    It's only been in the last couple of years that they have come down in price. One big enough to make fuel caps, timing covers, and other comparable size parts would run in the neighborhood of $10,000.
