acrylic ez grip?

first time posting on mcb...ive browsed long enough to the point of other people yelling at me to join finally.


anyways, i was thinking about getting an acrylic pump handle, probably clear, made to replace the stock delrin ez grip on the ccm pump kits. i was wondering if anyone else would be interested.

im not sure on a price yet, i still have to go get a quote. i plan on probably getting 20 made, depending on price. if theres a lot of people interested, i will make more. im just seeing if this would be something that others would be interested in (thus driving the cost down of each piece)

The problem with acrylic pump handles is they crack very easily during the machining process as well as in use.

i figured if acrylic pump handles are already made for the original handle, it wouldnt be too much of a risk for cracking

Believe it or not it is. The attrition rate on the T-Grip and EZ Grip is quite substantial and with the expense of the material to begin with it is tough to consume the cost.

is there a certain material that the regular acrylic handles are made out of, or is it just acrylic?

I think it's just their round shape that makes them simpler to machine.

What Mel is trying to say is that in order to make an acrylic T-Grip or EZ Grip, you would pay dearly for it. This is because in order to make one good one, they might have already screwed up 4. So for them to sell you 1 they must cover the material cost of 4 handles + machine time + Profit.

So basically she is saying if you don't have $$$$$$$$$ you can forget about it.

Pretty much its not even worth it for them to waste their time trying. Acrylic really sucks. Trust me, ive broken many parts.
