I found an online CNC machine shop, I don't know what he prices are like, but it seems like a legitimate place to get spudgun parts machined

The site is very legitimate. D_Hall has directed other members to that site in the past.

From what I understand their prices are quite steep. Around what you would expect for custom machining through the internet :wink:

They can also weld, cast, extrude, etc.

Yes, their machining costs are VERY steep. I was thinking of buying a custom part until I realized it'd cost over $200. Some of that cost may have been averted by suggesting they use a pre-made component, but still way above what I'd pay.

You could use their design/pricing software to work out a design you could take to a physical machine shop :)

If you only had $20 for a compressor, I doubt it ;)
