GMH Aluminium Ears - Commitment

  1. #26

    Re: GMH Aluminium Ears - Interest

    I'm interested. What's the possibility of getting parts machined from a different metal, like nickel or brass (understanding that the raw material cost would be different)?

    Hey bud, thanks for your interest but I'm curious as to why you would want them made from those materials?

    How will the main ear parts attach to the helmet?

    I'm interested in plating and/or acid etching the parts. Aluminum is less suitable for that than say, brass. It could be as simple as throwing different raw stock on the machine, or it could require different tooling. I don't know whether it would be a huge deal for the machinist, or no problem, so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

    Not that your asking me, but it would deffinently need different tooling
    and the whole point is to replicate them to the originals as best Mojo can

    It would require different tooling and altering the parameters because the metals would react differently. Even different types of aluminum can react slightly differently and alter the end product.

    BGH is right Rich, I'm trying to replicate the ears as best I can to every detail including the materials?
    I'm interested in hearing more on your project tho?
