    Yes I like that a lot, sorry the engineer in me comes out, I am just jealous that I don't have CAD to play with, or any cool machines

    It's all good, I did see it but let it go because most of the time I would fine tune that at the time of production.

    I think I have finalized the 3 designs. I had hoped to have these done Monday or Tuesday but I had to order tooling so we are looking at next weekend to finish up.

    I like option 3.
    Speaking of switches, my emag switch is getting finicky. Any advice on replacing it? I've never dug that far into the gun.
    If you need a set of lowers to experiment with, I got one laying in a box you could borrow (so you don't have to take yours apart)

    the set screw in the assembly is funny some times, it is in there almost to the point you strip it trying to get it out or it kinda floats.
    but I doubt that is your problem, just be patient if you try to remove screws from it. and such.
    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I was always thinking about making these...just too many projects. glad to you see you are going to make it happen! would be a good idea to clearance the bottom of them so the lever does not rub on the frame....I think it would wear the anodizing on the frame.

    Been selling switches for about 10 years but always made them on my knee mill, these will be the first cnc made though. (Joy)
    Adding a little clearance wouldn't be a problem, thanks for the heads up.

    YEAH,
    I have noticed that all the previous switches have rubbed. never thought anything of it. lol just threw the switches out and put the stock ones on.

    Yea, I never noticed it either. I just installed a stock one and it rubs too, with it being plastic it may not have wore the anno down. I will just add a small clearance pass on the bottom. It will still rub under the screw area but it will be a circle that can't be seen..

    To make sure I don't miss these when they're ready, when do you think you can take orders?

    Can't say for sure with tooling on back order, that's the only thing holding up production.

    These will be kept in stock though.

    OK, so I got the programs dialed in, need to setup my programs for repeats and the mill for final production and I'll button up this little project.

    It was addressed but differently than what was previously mentioned. I actually redesigned them with the offset, had it programmed ready for production and changed my mind on the direction of the fix. I believe that idea would actually act like a drill bit and end up galling the area under the screw. That is because it would have had two little tiny surfaces to constantly dig into your frame. I guess it would be hidden under the lever, but I think it would cause much more damage.

    What I did was redesign the slot. It does not run the full length to the lever anymore, it is only as long as needed to fit the assembly. The idea is, the single larger surface area will cause less damage over time. It's not really something you would consider unless you see the CAD's.

    I think this was the best solution after studying the models .

    Yes, these are a stock item.
