bottom right is the star burst. I understand when you say it has more "range".

right now though I am leaning toward keeping the lower right for myself. It "feels" nice when you touch it

I have a few stock 2000 bodies for you to mill up since you are out.

It was too cold to go down to the shop today so I did some marathon G coding. I have all the code written for the back blocks and I also designed the fixture to hold it while its in the machine. Tomorrow I'll make the fixture and see if I can get one in the mill.

Did the back blocks take as much time as the bodies? They are important to overall look of the marker, but they seem small and complicated. I was dremeling on one recently

You mean the modeling? The very first design did because I was kind still feeling my way though how to setup all the curves and such but once I did it went pretty quick on the others.

As for the machining it should be pretty quick. there is a lot less metal to remove on a back block.
