Im trying to find a good deal on some machining work. Small aluminum box frames. Nothing complicated just some milling. Probably comparable to something like a lower reciever. Probably only need batches of twenty a month at most. Anyone know where to go?

what tolerances do you need held ? do you need them finished / anodized ? is it going to be milled from a solid ?

Well I would hope I could get everything under a millimeter as far as errors go. I don't need them finished. I can polish aluminum myself. May end up doing some anodizing in future batches but not at first.

Yeah I do believe they would probably be milled from a solid.

Im looking to expand my home business. I make wood box mods. (fancy ecigs)

Im looking to get into the metal frame regulated (computer chip controlled) market.

So something similar to this but full frame . Insides wont need anything fancy other than some areas where things will be mounted. No tapping or anything crazy.

I also am not able to do the computer 3d modeling crap. I can give exact measurements and whatnot of the design once I settle on it but whoever does the work would have to apply my drawings and measurements.

Also, if you want any laser engraving done on those, the wood or metal, surface or deep engraving, let me know.

Can you do bright cut engraving?

Have you considered a cut and formed solution? It may be more cost effective than whittling it out of billet.

CEMAZ is in Deer Valley. They've been an equally easy to work with as a vendor and customer for the better part of a decade.

Whether fabbed or machined they can do it. Low quantities are no big deal. For finishing they offer plating, coating,etc. For part marking- pad printing, laser marking (on appropriate surfaces), stamping, etc are available.

I've always experienced a very low ego quotient there. Very refreshing
