of hand machining at $50 per looks like...

6061 T6 aluminum caliper hanger for a 2 pot billet Brembo

That's what I wanted for my 5th gen, but didn't know anyone around here willing to do it.

I think the 4 pot billet would actually stop you better...

I can appreciate fabricating all of that stuff by laying out everything by hand and manually machining everything but I could probably model all of that stuff in SolidWorks in a few hours and send it out to be made by some shop with a CNC and a week later I'd have my parts for much cheaper than what you were paid to do that.

I send a lot of my small jobs to some dude who does all his machining without a CNC because he is fast and his quality is super so I can appreciate your skills but NFW would I pay $2k for that.

Larry, I'm disappointed in the safety wiring displayed here.... specifically the right caliper mounting bolt.... the wire is actually pulling to loosen the bolt. Shame! As an ex-AF guy I'm sure that you would understand neither caliper mount bolt wiring would pass A/P inspection.

You're right... thanks for pointing that out... and just think I was Quality Control prick in the USAF...

I am now more convinced than ever that Larry's primary job on this board is to tittilate and frustrate those of us who don't have the tools and (far more importantly) the skills to build these sweet, lightweight race bits.

Hey Larry, I have a 5th gen that will be stuck in Cali for a bit when I move to NYC. What if I parked it in your garage as a test bed for your modifications. You can sell what you've designed to the hungry folks here at VFRD, and I'll, uh, beta test the hell out of the proto-types, yeah, thats it, beta test... :D

Freakin sweet as always dude!

BLS is nothing special! I carved something very similar with my Leatherman and an old stick the last time we had a good fire and few beers in my back yard! OK, I can't even imagine coming up with that on my own. The closest I can come is a friend that has a CNC in his garage and he puts out bits n pieces for Kuryakyn. I just dream. tongue.gif

Nice work :fing02:

All hand work or you running a CNC to help? I worked as a CNC repair tech for 7 years before I headed in to the Nuclear field. Saw some amazing things come out of blocks of metal.
