    Jun 16, 2012, 12:23 AM - INTEREST: Aluminum Jango Blasters #1

    so my boys at the machine shop would like to do a run of jango blasters. they've been using my set of blasters for all their reference so far, which i believe to be a pair of master replica prototypes. now these aren't going to be cheap, but they will be less than what MR's are going for these days; a rough estimate is that they will be around $600/pair. i'll need at least 20 to make this happen, and will be able to handle more if there's that much interest.

    here's the cad drawings of whats done so far.





    i think they've cadded up the handle, i just don't have the pic of that yet. also i have a few pieces prototyped as well, i just don't have handy pics of those either. so would anyone like these?

    Give me a few months and I might try these out. Money is a bit tight right now through the summer.

    I also have a machinist looking at a set of these from wizardofflight's schematics.

    Price is too high for me. At that cost, I'd rather pony up the extra 200 and get MR ones.

    I think this was a great I idea. Come holiday or tax time, I think this project would do well. People's wallets seem to be pretty tight right now. If these would look anything remotely near a MR Westar, I'd love to have an extra set.

    I'll second that. Timing is just bad.
