Looking good Troll! What's you estimate on having units available now?

Hi y'all, I'm bran new here so maybe you guys can help me... I have been looking for replacement sights for my C9 and ended up at mahansights.com. (In fact it was the link on his webpage that brought me to this forum.) anyway both his webpage and his cox.net email are non-functional at the moment. Sooo is Mr. Mahan back in business? Does anyone know how I may get in touch with him? I have a question about his sights and then I think I'd like to place an order.

I'll call him tonight and see if I can get him to update stuff, and us, on the status.

Hi guys still working on the sights. Today I got to work on two custom tool holders. Presently they both look like this!!

(On the phone with Ex trying to get pictures up hang in with me please)

Got it, ended changing my operating system to Linux Mint, with Ex was driving the thing I was just hanging on for dear life!!

The end mills will stick out the top!! These will allow me to get right on top of the part, meaning I will be able to go faster and get a better finish! Notice the XD card for size comparison!!

My strategy at his point is to get my process dialed in then take a week off from work and make all the parts i can!!! Then they have to be anodized. They say it's not "hard anodize" but you ought to see what it does to a carbide end mill!!


Image

Here is the part that was cutting in the video; You can see the through holes in the in the side! The one on the left is the very first part I cut with my new programs on the Tormach!! :worthless:

Image


Here's a close up! You can see the part as it's surround by the disposable material. The stick starts out @ 10.0 inches!! It's nothing special 6061 5/8 inch square!! Very available, fairly inexpensive!! That thru hole will be .1255 +/-.0002. It'll probably be closer to +.0002-0

Image

Here's an ultra close up, I want to get a better finish AND go faster!

Image

Here is the top!! There are three holes drilled thru and into this side!! One is .116 diameter thru with an 82 degree chamfer, one will be tapped at 4X40 thru and two will be on the right but they will not be thru!! They will be on the same center line as the hole thru the side!!

Troll is having photobucket issues right now keeping him from posting pictures. Should have some up tomorrow night with more info. Estimate 3-4 weeks to get finished products ready and available!

Went to post some pics, Worked 5.5 hours today on sights only!!! Still learning!!! Photobucket is down!! Later guys sorry:{

:worthless:

BTW guys I am learning a whole new skill set!!! It is pretty much a self learning situation as I work with the software to learn what makes it happy!!

There some things I need to learn about writing G code for machines!!!

The pile of the 9 sticks which will make 27 parts, I plan to make lots more! Each stick makes 3 sights!

The number "1" is the same side on both shots. I just rotated 90 degrees help you see the 3 cuts!! You might say a "poor mans 4th axis" A 4th axis simply allows for turning a part to cut another profile which again can be seen in previous posts.


Image

Image

The simple square cuts are made so that I can present to the fixturing machined square surfaces. The raw stock is about.630-.634/side! It is not guaranteed square or closer than about +/-.005 or so!! I take a .01 deep cut to just barely clean up the material. It is not guaranteed square or closer than about +/-.005 or so!!, pick up my fixture and cut parts!!

In order to make sure your sights are good to themselves I have to prepare the material with these cuts because I have to turn the parts 90 degrees twice during machining!!

Below is a picture for the set up I'm developing so I can walk in, open the vice, drop in my fixturing!

Notice the adjustable supports! Pretty soon I won't even adjust them! They'll be rigid and devoted to the vice that is always mounted on the machine!!

Like I said this machine is not at allllll fast!! There are high end machines that would probably finish a single sight in 5-8 minutes or less!! I'm expecting around 25-30 minutes/part

Image

From the slightly elevated shot of the one part where i actually cut a profile!! Its on the left

Image


This is called "rest machining" because I hit it pretty hard with .25 diameter cutter and then finish with a .125 diameter which only cuts what remains (thus the term "rest" machining). This pass goes pretty fast for that reason!!

It's been a month since I received an email from conservativetroll stating he was hoping to be shipping in 1-2 months. I'm assuming since one still can't place an order from his website that he's still perfecting his art.
Any updates?

I haven't heard anything - I might fire an email off to him and ask.
You might try sending him a PM and see how that works.

He says he's working furiously on programming for the machine he's using to make the parts.

He says he will do a post sometime.
But as far as shipping parts - all he can say is that it's coming! :great:

So, it sounds like he's working on it!!

And I'm glad to hear it!!
As I've said many times before - His adjustable sight is the cats-ass for a Hi-Point...
I can guaranty you it works!! It makes shooting my JHP Hi-Point a lot more fun.
And once you get it set where you want it - it stays in place.

I wonder how many he's gonna cut on the first run. I'd love to get reliable sights on a couple of my HPs. Clearly, I'm not alone. Being CNCd, speed and repeatability should help alleviate the long line of hungry customers.

It's just the CNC programming that has to come first. Troll can do that but this machine uses a variant language and he's had to jump through lots of hoops to make it work.
I think it's real close though.
