    I can't remember for the life of me who makes the aluminum boxed engine standoffs. I would like another for my new DLE35RA. Does anyone know who made the last one I had?

    I'm not sure if they make that type, but I have used SWB mounts for years.

    No they have just the post type. I too like using SWB products. Got 4 new 1.5" halfs and a 3" offset arms ordered for those Savox.

    Got a prompt reply PM from Gravy (he's f'n awesome)...it's a no go. EF owns the rights to 'em. I don't think I can convince them to make me one.

    I've made some stand offs similar to the aluminum ones from AC ply. You can stack them to the the offset you need. I start with 1/4 thick. Rough cut them out on a scroll saw. Then smaller thicknesses as you need. I glue them together with CA and finish them on a belt sander and a spindle sander. IMG_7397.JPG

    IK made this out of AC ply Today for my DA-60. THe factory bought ones were crushing and throwing off the engine alignment. This should fix it.

    THe last picture is of my Manual Laser Cutter. :)
