I found a new firm before I left and gave them all the details / prototype etc and a chunk of cash. With a completion date for when I get back which should include the plating.

Sneak preview....

Going to do a quick re-check that all is good before having them all plated.

Machined up a nice little thread tester too while they were at it.

Collected the batch from the platers today and so they're finally all here ready for those that wanted them.

They've worked out a bit more than I hoped as I had to change machinist to actually get them made in the end. Usual deal though, if payments are not made through Paypal, then the savings in no fees is passed back to you.
