    Re: Accurate Gauntlet Darts - Interest?

    3rd one received this afternoon....
    Ok after a lengthy chat with the machinist, he has made the final tweeks and said that he won't make anymore without charging me another high price for the prototype.
    I had also inquired about the material change and basically due to material costs over here, it would be double the price and the fact the settings will have to be altered due the machining speeds etc for stainless it's blown the costs for me!

    he'd like to push the button on the project as he has 'other' work that requires the lathe.

    Let me know what you think?

    Outstanding Gav!

    A shame on the material for total accuracy I guess but at least the proportions look spot on!!!

    As before, I'm still in.

    That looks great.
    Shame about not being able to switch to stainless. I would have been willing to pay double for it.
    I'll still take a set in alum until I'm able to track down some more originals.

    Gav, I hope that this project serves as a successful example for other makers that it is worth making that extra push for more accurate parts. Also that it is beneficial to take public observations and criticisms into account before pulling the final trigger on a project.

    Thanks for doing so. It was totally worth it.

    Cheers guys...
    Well like I said I wanted to pull the trigger, but it does go to show that with a little extra effort?

    Thanks to all who contributed...
    Well, If everyone happy then I'm gonna pull that preverbial trigger tomorow (and look for another machinist)

    Gino - If I had a more patient machinist and loads of cash to drop on a further prototype then maybe it could have happened? but at this rate, your all practically getting these at cost.

    Cheers bruv, I think It just shows that the 'relationship' the machinist and I once had is no longer there. BUT I have made some new and interesting contacts.

    Good stuff mate! With some of the parts to make an accurate costume, the smallest detail counts. And with the standards you have you need a guy who's onboard. Looking forward to receiving my package mate!!
