I make arms for my xx4 out of delrin. They are .086" thicker than stock and have .043" more material around the hinge pin holes.

Are you selling those to the general public?

I never really considered selling any until now. The only problem is, they are very time consuming to produce because I don't have a cnc mill. What would you guys consider paying for a pair?

Sorry Superstar, but these take around 5 hours per pair to make. If I had a cnc setup I could probably do it.
