What Randy said.

Dave Mahan has purchased a machine (at quite an expense) so that he can turn these out without subbing many of the processes out. That will help keep the
cost low. The hitch has been getting the machine maker to respond with any programming help setting the new machine up. That's the delay.

I will call him this weekend and see if I can get him to update us all on status.

Those new to the board please know that he makes probably ~$8 per sight. Not much for a lot of work. Please be patient as this has been quite
a process for him getting this new machine (he did) and figuring out the proprietary programming for said machine. Dave is a professional machinist
and not green to this process, but this new machine is quite different and again, proprietary.

Hope this info helps... please be patient.

Just got on to see what has been going on in Hi Point America and this just made my day!!! :good one:

Hi Guys

Sorry this has taken so long! Have determined that i will make them myself this time!! Just couldn't afford to drop $3500 so I'm making them myself!!! It is just taking forever to learn some software as I am still working a full time gig and this is on the side!!

I keep saying this that my plan is to be shipping in a couple of months! Now that means Mayish!!:) I also plan to expand the product line bringing back the Gen Two sight (see pic) as well as a rail conversion to picatinny/weaver configuration for the guys that have JHC an JHP models!!

The plan should be doable because I'll be making75-100 sets at a time! At those counts anodizing becomes really inexpensive and that is where I have to get logistically!!

Please bear with me and for the kind supporting comments I say "THANKS A MILLION"!!!

I haven't been in my cox account lately but will be in it tomorrow so i do apologize to airdownalex and a couple of others for not responding sooner! Haven't been my account that feeds of the website in a while will do that tomorrow I promise!!

Image

Here is a cad model of the Gen Two sight The design intent is to allow shooters who move from target to target to acquire the target while still in motion! I like the sight but sold them all!! Want to bring it back along with a rail adapter. I'm quitting for the night since i lost about 20 minutes worth of work when photobucket crashed on me


Thanks again for your patience and support

Thanks Troll, I'll be patient, but if I don't get one by the second of Mayish I'll be banging on Ex's door with a noodle looking for some pool time! :twisted:

Yeah, that's right, I'm dry, I need to get wet! :minigun:


:groan: Was that mean enough guys? :wow: I even scared myself...

Pretty cool video!!
I did a little "internet research" on a Tomach Mill...
Looks like a CNC Mill you can put in a corner of your garage and still have plenty of room to park a car too!!
I'm guessing that's a "new addition" to the sight making business??

And I'm glad to see Troll "making chips" again!!
His sights are well thought out and easy to use.
I have thousands of rounds through my JHP and the sight has never moved...
Except when I adjusted it once or twice!! :D

And I ain't smart enough to know what a "Cox Account" is...
A way for Troll to funnel his millions to an "off-shore" bank account?? :whistle:

Hi Guys

Getting closer! Thanks for all you who have supported and been paitent! I am still working full time. This is a side gig that I love, but side it is!!

I mentioned my Cox Account because one of the guys had mentioned trying to contact me through it!!

Anyhow, I never did buy a mill, I bought a pick up!! A 1987 Nissan with 380,000 yep, 380K! I was tired of biking in the AZ heat!

Ex_ISP and I are friends, talked a lot about this, and in the end I just couldn't drop the money!! There is a company here in Chandler Arizona that makes the mill Ex was referencing!! $3400-$3500 to get the sights made!! Bought the truck!!

The mill in the video is in a facility called TechShop. There are about 7 of them across the US. You join for $150 per month and you have access to ALL KINDS OF SOFTWARE, cutting technology, tooling, 3D printing, water jets, laser, conventional milling and turning etc. They make you get training for which they charge!! But you have options no one except Donald Trump could afford!

Today I spent the day editing my programs, running simulations etc. I have software that will run the program at real time rates. I was timing and comparing!! Was able to shave 8 minutes of my production cycle which is HUGE i tell ya HUGE:

These things are nearly as fast as most mills in the industry. They are made in a America and are quality made. Time is a big issue! BUT they are driven by stepping motors, and in a huge cost saving move, they have NO FEED BACK LOOP! Modern mill monitor their own performance. They compare the command given to the actual performance and make adjustments!!! The Tormach can't do that! All that costs lots o money!!!!

As long as don't push them too hard they'll make good parts. Ill be making some special tooling that will allow me to get closer the the part! Hopefully I'll be able to push a little more and cut out some of the chatter that you are hearing when that 1/8 carbide end mill you see is cutting!!

Anyhow things are moving along!!
