    I know a way to keep prices down. I am a droid builder as well and alot of the droid parts are farmed out to http://www.mfgquote.com/ it is a site where you submit your plans and people around the world will bid on your plans and give you a quote. That might be an avenue?

    I'm definitely interested.

    So what's the word on these? Are they still a potential go?

    I'm interested pending price. I'd love to not have to drop $500 for the MR's, so if it could be around $250 or even less, that would be awesome. But I'll wait until a good price estimate comes in and go from there.

    sorry for no update.trying to juggle family,work and finishing my jango for a con coming up soon here.i did talk to another offshore manufacturer and he wouldn't even touch 300 pieces.if anyone one this board could give me a cad program my relative could get a definate price and the qty would be alot lower.besides what's really holding me up is that i don't have a good sample of the components to show my relative for the cnc guy.....

    I'm pretty sure that Wizardofflight has the Westars plotted out in CAD, but I could be wrong.

    I do know that he posted up decent enough drawings that I'm going to use those in an attempt to make my own out of PVC, wood and brass tubing.

    Here's the thread with the drawings, scroll down to post #5.

    Westar 34 schematic

    When printing it out, I used 8.5" x 11" paper, then doubled the size on a photocopier. It'll just fit on 8.5" x 14" paper. ( just make sure that the barrel is 2.5cm in diameter.

    I'm in only if I can get spare parts. I just need the grips and trigger sections, as my barrels are machined and the rest is resin.

    Reveal1vader, I've got some good pics of an aluminum Westar that's been dissasembled. I don't recall where I found it, but I came accross it during one my many Google searches for reference pics. I can e-mail or PM them to you, if you think that they'd be helpful. let me know.

    Maybe it has been done already, but just my thought. Has anyone asked Alan to use his drawings? Using them for personal use is one thing, a run is different. I know nobody is here to make a profit. But to be technical about it, you will be copying his work if you do use it. If you have not received permission, I would certainly ask.
    I asked when I was trying to get a flame thrower for ESB made. I used his drawing after he said ok. All he wanted in return was one made for him too. Well worth it.

    I personally haven't asked Alan permission yet for the main reason that I didn't know if the drawings were what reveal1vaders brother figured the CNC guy would be able to work from. Hence why I only linked to the thread where Alan originally posted them. If the drawings turned out to be what the CNC guy needs, then I figure that it would be up to reveal1vader to ask Alan.

    I seem to recall during my exhaustive search for aluminum blaster makers, that there was one member who made some a while back.

    Any one remember who it was? Perhaps we could could persuade them to do another run... so long as we promise not to do any disintegrations.

    And not to worry Laan, you didn't come across as rude at all. I only wanted to let it be known that I do understand the whole concept of asking before using for mass productions. So it's all good.

    Be sure to keep us posted.

    In the mean time, I'm still going have a go at making some from brass tubing, PVC pipes and wood.

    If this is still on please let me know. I have been working on the detail drawings for Jango's blaster. Specifically detailed dimensioned drawings of each piece of the blater. I am sure that an arrangement can be worked out.
