So I'm a CNC machinist and can use my shop at work to make pretty much anything I want on the weekends. So what would you guys be interested in me making, I currently am drawing up some rear end links and a few other things. I saw people wanted some "RSTi" badges will look into that. But what else do you guys want?

I wouldn't mind a machined lip that fits around the shifter trim.

ahh cool. I'm building my own CNC machine currently; nothing but a noob. It's almost complete... but mostly a small prototype to etch some circuit boards for now. I'll probably build a bigger one when I get my welder.

Anyway, what kind of material do you guys cut/use? Are there any limits to what you can/cannot do? I would really like some parts cut to make a tube bender for my future project. There's a lot of free drawings online for various types of tube bender; if you can make the parts for me for a cheaper price, I'll certainly be interested.

we mainly machine aluminum (6061 and 7075) but can do other materials also. We do alot of Aerospace and Aviation, Medical/Dental, Recreation, Wafer Fabrication, Healthcare and Air Ambulatory work.

Are you talking about 1-offing stuff for people or doing production?

THere are plenty of small things Id like made, but it would depend a lot on cost

I can do either, production would be more cost efficient though. I'm basically just trying to see what people are interested in me making.
