    Thanks.

    But to be honest, no, it doesnt really pay off to have/buy the machines/equipment just to build this things. Not if building parts to not need to buy the parts is the only purpose of the equipment. Its not only buying the lathe/mill, you have to double the price of the machine for buying the additional needed tools. It would be cheaper to buy the parts, or have them made, than making them yourself (with all needed/made expenses added honestly).

    But it does pay off if you see the machining and building as a own hobby. If you feel the building as fun, not alone having the ready part available. Then its a very satisfying fun to make your own parts. I like building things after spending the day in the office, its relaxing.

    Nice job. Delrin was a good choice as it is the best machinable plastic around. I tried using other materials for my han solo blaster but found delrin worked best and didn't have any trouble making it. Delrin Sheet, Delrin Rod, Acetal Sheet, Acetal Rod

    Beautiful blaster! Have you put it on a scale? I'm curious what it weighs.

    My No 1 Mk I tips the scale right about 7 pounds, and I haven't even added anything to it yet.

    I just tried it, but the kitchen-scale went into "Error" after going over 3Kg.
