    Can anybody machine this?

    Hey guys, I have been working on a triple diode host design for a while now. I was wondering if anyone would be able to build it. If you can, I can send you the cad so that you can see all the measurements etc. It was created in google sketchup. Front veiw of the heatsink(main thing in...

This question is mainly just...
