I only have one fixture left. No more will be available until around November.

 

A big thanks to all who have supported this effort.

Get the last one, it used to take me about 7 holes to pin a body, now it only takes 4 :)

 

Cheers

They are all gone. I will do another run in the fall if there is interest. Thanks again to everyone who supported this effort.

Like the raceways who pay rent so there is a market for an item, like yours, that is only sold direct to the racer.

I have a hole in my machine time coming up in the next couple of weeks. Two have contacted me and if there is enough interest I will machine up another batch. I am looking at another run of 12 units. Materials cost are different from last year so I will have to quantify any change. I will have final costs later tonight.

OK, checked the prices of the materials. Price will be the same as last year:

$90 USA

$100 International

 

I am limiting this to a run of 12 units. Please PM me if you have not already so I can put you on the list and keep it straight. 5 people have already PM me.

Shooter7mustang and blkdout76 please PM me.

 

Greg, I will send another donation to SB

Thanks for the compliment Matt.

I would like to be able offer raceways discounts but there just is not enough margin at this price.

What I did last year was if you wanted more than one I could put two in a box for the same shipping to help save some.

This fixture can also be used to locate or relocate pin tubes to line up with existing holes in a body. This comes in handy when dealing with vintage bodies where you just can't or don't want to make new holes.

Do you still have any for sale? What is the cost? Looks like a great idea for pinning bodies!

Got mine as well.  Great piece of kit!  Only downside is that I need to (poorly) paint some more bodies now.  :laugh2:
