    Hey Guys,<br>Since I have uploaded my Youtube Video ( <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lpXF2HmLno&list=UUeIZckFcnSTHjmVk8uB07gg&index=1" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lpXF2HmLno&list=UUeIZckFcnSTHjmVk8uB07gg&index=1</a> ) I have had a few requests if I where to sell these trigger units. I contacted a few companies who could CNC machine a small (About 50) Series of these units. Now the question to you guys is would you have interests in buying one of these? (Cost still needs to be calculated). Please comment so that I have a brief statistic. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>PS. I will be able to send to the USA. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    using a cnc-mill for those parts would be "Mit Kanonen auf Spatzen schiessen" <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Haha ok <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>But why? I mean with what you do it else? And maybe I can improve this design to make it worthy for the CNC.....and if yes how would I improve it? <br>

    Since i don´t think you require the strenght of stainless steel for your projekt i´d say you can saw and file those parts out of aluminum in around 20min. Just a little bit more in steel.<br><br>Do you even know how much one hour on a cnc mill costs?^^ And none of those parts can be done in one turn.

    yer go for 5 mm aluminum, should be strong enough.

    Ok thanks those are some good thoughts. Do you guys think that a nice jig saw with a metal blade, will go through the 5mm aluminium easily? And any ideas on how to imrpve the design? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    it goes trough, but not easy. get some special aluminum blades for the saw. and take care, ive cut my finger once while cuttin alu, the saw can start to bounce. <br>so far no suggestions to the design, it should work as it is.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Antraxx is right. You could cut these yourself and make more money. A jigsaw with variable speed, turned low would work for alum. Waxing the blade would help with clogging and a bit of the chatter. If you're just starting and don't have a jigsaw, got a hand coping saw. Small investment so if you don't sell a lot (it is a small market), you're not out a bunch of cash. You could even hand cut them while watching TV. File and sandpaper to dress it up. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"></span>

    You know, if you don't exceed 150 lb draw force (very hard with rubber), then you could even use plywood instead of the aluminum. Just a little redesign to make it thicker where it is important. <br><br>

    OK Thanks, I will start once I get all the materials. But yes i do have all the tool except for the aluminium blades. I guess Ebay and here on the forum is the best place to sell these mechanism right? And what would you ask? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Do you guys think 8mm should be fine? I mean you know 5mm is not that thick and i am worried that if someone installs the trigger a little losely then the two pieces slip past oneanother and then the shot is fired and someone gets injured <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3">
