    Any one with a milling machine what to make some money?

    Hi guys

    Im on the look out for any one that has access to a milling machine/lathe that would be interested in making me up a light body?

    I would provide full CAD drawing but just wanted to know if there was interest out there before i start drawing anything up. To give you and idea of the sort of project, it will be two cree xml's with a triple xpg set between and below, arraned in a sorta clover leaf arangment, combined with a taskled H6flex. Im also open to other suggestions for the design or if any one has anything that you already have and think may be sutiable.

    So if you are interested add to this thread or PM me.

    I have a mill, a little ability to make things, and some interest in money (pays for toys ). When you get a design, post it or PM it and I'd be glad to give you an estimate of cost and iron out details.

    A drawing might be handy anyway, would give us an idea what level of machining is required.
    That will also give us machine owners an idea how much time is required, also where are you based as shipping cost can be a factor here.

    Lack of funds has sadly caused a stop to all my projects for the time being. Thank you for the offer anyway.
