I looked at emachines a few years back for doing some custom car parts. The CAD tool was a bit funky. The price was not hobby friendly as you note. My friend owned a machine shop so he just CNCed the thing since he wanted it too. I never tried a plastic part with emachine, but its all about the set up cost and the tool you use. material is immaterial ( or should be) You've seen the fishing rod holders. small rubber part u-shaped things. pry it open slip the rod in... I'm thinking down those lines, just for me, not a company endorsed thing. Just messing around.

The price quote was $1600! :-( (In all fairness, it's a much larger piece than what you're talking and in aluminum.) Are their prices workable for smaller plastic designs? -Steven On Mon, May 5, 2008 at 3:53 PM, steve <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Have you used emachine shop? _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
