    What brand of CNC do you use? I cant tell anymore, been awhile since I used mills. All I see is Swiss Turns anymore.

    Thanks.

    There is an unbelievable amount of work in these, way more than I care to admit. With the lack of interest I can't fathom ever doing another run, which is to bad cuz all the hard work and effort is done.

    I think I might just have to get a couple curved ones too. I can't decided which one I like. I keep going back and forth. I keep changing my mind on which one I like better.

    *Just placed an order for 1/16" Brass LP Hose Barbs and the spring/adjuster disks. Prices were low enough that it didn't make sense to make them myself.
    *Also ordered materials for the last fixture I need to machine the final shape of the Foregrips.
    *Next week I will be designing and machining said fixtures.

    *After that we are down to having the springs made. I'm in too deep out of my own pocket on this project so springs wont get ordered until we hit 14 on the preorder list (Sorry).
    *Good news is the project is 90% completed as of today.
    *Bad news is it will take 3-4 weeks to have the springs made. The quicker we hit "14" on the list, the quicker I can place the final order.

    I seriously laughed out loud at that.

    I know, I'm a 12 year old inside and 35 on the outside but that was funny. +1 for inappropriate humor!
