I was bored the other day, and was having too much fun in Creo and have created a monster:











Prices are likely to be $30ea. Will likely be making a few of them for 501B kits when I start selling them.

Thoughts?

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Thanks! A few more modifications:





If anyone is interested in these, let me know, but be warned, these are going to be costly to machine... Lots of milling, and the rotary table will need to be tilted 45 degrees to do it right.

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Should be able to. What I have drawn is 1" diameter. It will be more expensive than most of my other knobs though.

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Well, I need something special for the build my daughter and I completed. I've splurged on the build so fat...PM me with details if you like.

What price range are you thinking for these?

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Well for just one of them, it's going to be ~$40-$60 depending on size, and that's because of the amount of machining and setup time involved. If we can do a group buy of sorts for them, then I can definitely get them down close to ~$25-$35 depending on size. Not sure if I can get them much lower unfortunately.

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Do you guys want the ones with the holes or the ones without? Also, should it have that shoulder on the end of it, or just be a straight cone shape?

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Personally, I dig the ones without the holes...This might even really dress up all those Krytons out there!

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

If people want to do with and without the holes, then that isn't an issue.

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

Im not going to buy one (i dont have the money). It was just my opinion :)

EDIT: On second thought, i wouldn't mind either one. Depends on what i would be building.

Re: Laser "Assault" Focus Knob

If we can manage to get these below $30, you can count me in for at least two. I'll be needing them.
