Custom Machine Shop
Does anyone know or have cnc shop where I can have a custom center differential gear made? I have the plastic piece and need a aluminum or steel one made. Any help is appreciated.

if you have a good local hardware shop, stop in and ask.
that is the kinda place a machine shop owner will shop often, and if its a good-old hardware shop the manager or others may know who owns a machine shop or know the owner personally. any good hardware store should be able to direct you to any plumber, construction, roofing, machining place.

I worked at such a hardware store and got to know a machine shop owner. one day I mentioned a RC project I wanted to do, and the idea interested him. he said if I wanted I could come down and work on it with him, for little more than the cost of the materials.

Thanks for your help and I'll have to look into the hardware stores around here.

what RC is this for as a good chunk there is something you could adapt from another model the company makes.
