Very nice! Blow your socks off nice. You definitely have some major talent there Jim. Better be careful who you show that to, might end up with a bag over your head in some dungeon somewhere getting interrogated. :)

Awesome chrome to be done in-house.

I have chrome-metalized parts in my fishing tackle lineup, but it has to be sent
out and done in a vacuum camber.

Very interested in where you purchased the chrome painting process.

Its really a ton of work john. This stuff has been around for some years but its such a pia to do. Alsacorp makes a couple chrome type systems. One is mirrachrome the other is their chromefx system. Chrome fx is better

Check this out...3d print did a story on the bomb. Very cool. They did mention makergear in there as well. From this article i just got a call from the star ledger who wants to write a story on it as well. I just finished an interview with them.
