Do you have a plastic or cheap pot metal part that broke? well I can help. I am an amateur machinist with a lathe and milling machine as well as an aluminum foundry and various hand tools. If you need a custom part, a replacement or have an idea for a new product, let me know. I'm just trying to help pay for my tooling so I work cheap. I can work from sketchup files, dxfs, pdfs, drawings on the back of a napkin or a physical model. I am located in Burlington, Near Toronto Ontario. Let me know if you have any questions. I apologize if this violates forum rules, but I feel I could be beneficial to the airgun community as a whole.

I don't think this violates any of the rules, and good to know. I envy your setup, I greatly miss my days of access to a milling machine and lathe. Even a proper drill press would be nice!

I'd be interested in some aluminum castings such as pistol grips and stocks for 2240's.
I am a full time machinist, but don't have the time to do stuff for myself! :( :(

If you want to drop it off with me, I can shorten it on the lathe and re crown it

Not going to shorten barrel after all.
But, I do need a nice, vented, not too long, brass, muzzle brake?
thanks

Was going to have cnc made 22xx/13xx in ss and in brass here but it was too expensive and not viable..The machine shop caters to aircraft parts as well as safes for export all over the world..

JeffreyGuy good look to your endeavor you sound like a very capable gent :drinkers:
