    Sign me up for a set too! You better hurry, China has probably seen this and they will be churning them out.

    I really like the look of this - the missus hates the vamo because as she puts it "it's like a lightsaber" and with something like a Taifun on top it really is huge!

    I too am interested in a few sets of these - nice work!

    I have updated picture and post a schematic drawing at the begining of that thread.

    Sorry for those who want one but I dont have a milling machine only a press drill so it is pretty long to do, more or less 4hrs. But it is relatively easy to do. So feel free to use my idea and go modding. Just give me credit if so:thumb:

    Have fun!

    I'm not sure if i am allowed to put a link but anyway
    RYOBI | 8 Pc Forstner Bit Set | Home Depot Canada

    They call it "Forstner Bit Set"

    By the way i am pretty sure it can be done with small pieces of hard wood. Just put a thin alluminium part on the wood top.
    It will be pretty for sure!

    Great extra pics and plans, thanks for sharing these too. How did you get the 20mm hole in the top plate with the SAE forstner set? One small thing, if you find that your hand wraps around it when holding and your finger tips rest on the threading, you have enough room there to add tubing to cover these for a nicer tactile feel.

    I have been pondering doing this also. An absolutely brilliant solution. Now to make it I will have to sweet talk the guys in the machine shop.

    Asdaq as always you have a big sense of observation. The I didnt find a forstner for the 20mm hole so I have to finish it with a dremel and sandpaper, not a big deal!

    And for the threading, you are right, i thought of some brass tubing that I think I can find in a RC helicopter store. Or maybe roll a brass wire all around. But I like also the look steampunk that give the threading. There is a world of possibility. Hope other will try and show us there work.
    Cioa!

    I've been wondering if Canadian Tire has this sort of stuff too, but I think maybe not. Glass tubing maybe?
