Oh god, how much did that ad cost to make? :P

I have to say, I didn't see the bottle opener hanging from her hip until the last few seconds :wink:

I saw it, cause I instantly knew this was going to be one of those "find the product we're selling" adverts. :D

My suggestion would be to affix the thing to the wall and unload a clip of the largest caliber firearm/airgun you can at; the largest that doesn't cause significant damage. Steel strike plates for body armor are thinner than the Torq, and usually just shrug off small rounds with only a lead smear to show for it.

Also, not sure how brass actually holds up in the long run, but alternatively, you could get that gold finish by doing a titanium nitride coating on a steel alloy. I'm guessing you'd have to 'outsource' that operation, though.

Wait a minute... titanium... CNC... I don't suppose you ever take small jobs at all? probably way out of what I can ever afford, but if you do what's a ballpark figure for say, a pair of BMX cranks from 4Al6V? Because god dammit, there aren't many machinist that even think of trying to CNC from titanium.

Ahh cool, I'll whip out my old hard drive when I get a chance and i'll send whatever I have. I'll send files for a pair of bmx brake calipers, just to see what sort of price it'd be, since brake arms are probably the most complex of the designs I have. What file format do you prefer?

We can open DWG, STL, IGES, SAT, DXF, SLDPRT, 3DM, and a few others. We can work from 2 or 3d files. In general, one of the features that will slow us down is internal splines.
