Mast Base

Post by Gwendlethred »

I need a new mast base - the aluminium insert that's riveted into the bottom of the mast.
So I've done a CAD model and I'll get it machined from 5083 marine aluminium.
Does anyone else want one while I'm at it?
The more I can order the cheaper they will be as most of the cost is programming and setup.
If I order just 1 then it'll cost a couple of hundred quid. If I order ten thousand then I could give them away in boxes of corn flakes.
I estimate that if a dozen or so folk want one then they'll be about £50 each.
Let me know if you're interested.

Hi Oliver
At £50 I may be interested as mine has been welded a few times as well.

P.S. I wonder if we should move this conversation to the General forum as more people will see it there. What do you think?

I'll put a post in general as well if you think that's a good idea.
