Default RC Machining For One Off Part

Im pretty keen on getting something, a slipper shaft for a custom offroad buggy machined/turned on a lathe and other machines likely aswell which needs to be pretty precisely made. So anybody who knows of a company who'll do one off parts Im very interested. Ive tried RC Product Designs but no real headway made so far

Thank you

Try www.emachineshop.com. They can do pretty much anything. Its a little expensive sometimes, but if you really want something and dont mind paying $40-100 or so for a small piece, give them a shot. Only downfall is you need to spend a little time to learn their software to draw the part.

Every part ive made on there no matter how small comes out at at least $120 for one part. Plus, it needs threads on it so theyre no good. Anywhere else

well to be honest the part you describe sounds like a 120$ part to make 1

cnc machines are:
expensive 100,000 & up
cad packages are expensive 2k per year
tool are expensive

ok now you have to take a couple hours to draw, program, setup , machine 1 part.

i can probably do it for you for 100 but i would need a little better drawing / definition of the part.
