Welcome to my custom machining shop. Below you will find different sections explaining what we have to offer.

Capabilities:

We also offer custom anodizing for aluminum parts, and have a wide selection of colors.

Common Parts:
Focus Knobs
Heatsinks
Hosts
Other Aluminum Components

Capabilities:
We can do both a glossy finish as well as a more matte anodized finish. We also have many color options available as seen below:


*Please note that colors may appear different in person than they do in pictures.

Pricing:
-$20 for 1 Batch, 1 solid color (1 Batch fits about 10 1" Focus Knobs, 10 C6 Heatsinks, 2 Small Hosts, or 1 Large Host.

Examples:







Custom Designing
We offer custom design work, primarily to create drawings for our use for producing your components, but you can also have us create professional mechanical drawings for you to use in the future with other machine shops.

Common Parts:
Custom Heatsinks
Custom Focus Knobs
Custom Multi-Diode Hosts
Other Custom Parts

Capabilities:
Creo 2.0 3d Modeling and 2d Drafting, Autocad 2013 (I prefer to do all work in Creo 2.0)

Pricing:
For basic heatsink and focus knob designs, design cost in minimal and is absorbed into the component cost. If you are looking for just regular design work, but are not having the components made by me, either because of our inability to machine a certain part, or you have having it CNC’d in bulk, rates will be around $25/hr. (I am very skilled in Creo 2.0, and can produce drawings very efficiently)

Examples:



Custom Hosts:




















Individual Orders:
If you are looking to buy a few custom heatsinks or knobs, then you’ve come to the right place. We offer custom heatsinks and knobs, as well as other components machined just how you want them. Often, customers will send me their hosts that they need a heatsink for, and we’ll get the heatsink made as soon as possible and shipped back. We do not stock many hosts anymore, so if you are looking for a certain host, just ship it to us, and we’ll convert from a flashlight to a laser host. No order is too small. We do orders as small as a single 1” knurled focus knob.


(Large Custom order for a Customer)

Bulk Orders and Group Buys:
We also do bulk orders and group buys. Running a laser shop and need 20 or 50 of a custom heatsink with high quality standards and a short lead-time? We’re just what you need! We also cater to group buys, so if you and several other people are all looking for the same heatsink or group buy, feel free to contact me and start a group buy thread. We’ll set a target quantity, and a respective price, and once reached, and the group buy closes, we’ll take payments from each member, machine the whole batch, and ship out to each customer.


(C8 Group Buy)


(Bulk Heatsink Order)

Commonly Made and/or Stocked Items
Custom Focus Knobs
Tripod Mounts and Heatsinks for Laser Sensors
C6 Rainbow Kit, The Ultimate Laser Collectors Set
Labby/Testing Heatsinks
3 Diode Host Kits
Items Currently for Sale (Clearance)
FS: Laser "Assault" Focus Knobs

Payment Details:
I typically use paypal, and generally payment is sent before any work begins. I will however accept almost any kind of payment, as long as it is safe and not a hassle.

FAQs:
Q: Do you build complete lasers?
A: No, we only build and sell laser components, however, in the past, I have coordinated with other members to do the final assembly of the electronic components, and then ship it to the customer.

Q: Do you ship international?
A: Yes.

Q: Can you make copper heatsinks?
A: Yes, but expect the price to be substantially higher than aluminum due to the higher cost, added shipping costs since I do not stock copper, and added costs due to the low machinability of copper.

Further Questions?
Feel free to message me if you have any further questions.

Thanks!

Stop necroposting. No one cares if you are first or not. Go to youtube comments for that nonsense.

Same here, when I saw this thread I was hoping he was building again, I love how shiny he makes some of his aluminum hosts, awesome chrome look.

Too bad he isn't making hosts anymore, his Mace of Doom model can be fitted with a camera telephoto lens to make an awesome beam expander:

Sincerely investigate any of these three short quotes as new concepts and you've taken your first step into a larger world:

"I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness..." - Max Planck. "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real" - Neils Bohr. "What we call physical things and events do not exist independently of subjective experience..." - Deepak Chopra.

Each of these three rabbit holes go deep, ending up in the same place.

Useless troll fighting.
