Those are some very nice hosts. I have some copper hosts, but these are the largest I remember seeing. Copper is very slow to machine and these likely took awhile to finish.
Yes exactly! )Most impressive host I've seen yet, heavy though, 3 pounds. That one will need to be babied, will certainly dent if dropped even a short distance. That, and would need to be wrapped in a cloth or something when not in use, I wouldn't want anything scratching it, but weight is fine with me and I'd be happy to take greater care with it.
Edit: Link to some photo's and a short video showing some CNC work being done on one:: https://imageevent.com/qdf_files/technicalgoodies/experimentersfolder/irandlightwavecommunications/copperlaserpointerhosts/copperhost?n=0
Copper rods the host parts were made from.
