The clamp is certainly worth it and I will gladly pay that amount.

Do something really well. See how much time it takes. It might be a product, a work of art, who knows? Then give it away cheaply, just because you feel that it should not cost so much, even if it took a lot of time and expensive materials to make it. - JC

I have a question about the cd clamp. Are you doing this all in 1 setup? I ask because to get the best results you are going to need to do the bore and the cd mounting surface in the same setup. I don't necessarily want to jump into this and have to label and address 100 envelopes, but I work in a shop with an NC lathe. I could likely get them run at cost. Let us know what that shop quotes and I will try and pry a quote out of our machinist.

the clamps i'm making are mounted once and not removed from chuck until it is complete, in other words the bore, the threading, the mounting surface are all on the same axis.

i will make sure that the quotation i get is for a job up to the same standard.

Count me in for a clamp as well. Nice work and certainly worth every penny. Machining is very complex and time consuming when you reaching for high accuracy and small production. I know from experience
