    Anyone need/want any small work done? Welding, CNC milling, etc.?

    I've got a small CNC-mill I can design/machine small things out of aluminum. I'd rather not machine steel/stainless because the machine is pretty lower power. I also have modeling software that I could design somethin for you if you'd like.

    Could also do some small welding/fabrication jobs for people if they'd like.

    Just let me know!

    You in the mood to do another dual alt. bracket? Same as last time, I'll make a cardboard template then provide measurements and what not. Be for the Escalade this time... Could turn into a small run of em depending on cost and what not. Guy that bought one of the Durango ones you made last time ended up copying them out of 3/8" aluminum and sold about a dozen of em for $100~ ea.

    I'd do a run of them. Like 20+, but not one. My plasma isn't hooked up anymore and i'd have to hook it all back up to do it again. That bracket is also too big for my mill so can't do it there.

    If you can get 20+ of them sold then i'll gladly do them.

    So we've purchased a Hurco VM10i vertical machining center. It's up and running and I'm able to cut parts.

    If there's anything anyone wants let me know and I'll do my best to make it for you. I can design, draw, program any part you'd like. I can also take a drawing if you have it. This isn't a business for me, just a side hobby, so I'm not looking to get rich off of it.

    The table size is 30x16 so I can fit a decent size part in there!
