how Big are your Balls? (ball sizers inside)

So, after some trial and error, I finally have a product that's nice enough to sell:

I present the "Marathon" ball sizer. This was designed by me, specifically for the man himself.

Small bore and Large bore shown. Custom sizes and increments available.



To promote readability, the back is sandblasted to make the part significantly less translucent. Then the laser engraving is done into the bottom of the part. This makes the front side very high contrast and clear, but the back is low contrast and hard to read... This alleviates the 30 seconds a dyslexic person (like myself) will spend trying to read the measurements backwards.



These are made to order in any size and with whatever labeling you would like. Accuracy is verified +-.001 using certified plug gages... These will be more accurate than your barrel bores.

I want to stress that I dedicated a lot of time into making this part "good design" in the traditional sense (without using helvetica!). Every facet and feature makes the part nicer and easier to use.

It would be an excellent addition to every gearbag.

Prices include shipping and are subject to change.

One: 14
Two: 27

Additional charge for customization: 6


2/24/12 UPDATE: Meet the new Blueberry Ball Sizer:





Made out of a deceptively dark translucent purple. I mostly wanted to do a project with the material, and it aligned with a custom sizer that I designed for another customer.

price... 27

That's freaking awesome. What's the durability of the material? Say if I were to through it into a gearbag. Will it snap from the weight and random things rolling around?

It is pretty hard to bend the part by hand. It won't break from normal use, but don't be dropping tanks on them.

In fact, don't be dropping tanks on any measuring instruments.


EDIT:

Actually: I'll do you one better. Members get 6 months comparable replacement guarantee. If you break it, and don't feel bad about asking for a new one, I'll send you the latest version on my dime.

(Do let me know how you broke it, though; I don't mind feedback on durability!)

This is awesome Chris, I have never had something named after me. I promise a full and (mostly) impartial review once I get my hands on it.

Chris put some cool feature into it. Not because I asked but because he thought it would make it better. He also competed it quickly, right when he said he would.

Cheers
