Roy I'd love to get my hands on one. A used one came up recently on the 16mm forum for a great price, but the money wasn't there to do it.
Do you think anything could be done with the price if a larger batch were made? Perhaps taking deposits to secure a "larger batch" would be a better way to go?
Lastly, do you do the machining yourself, or sub-contract it out? My company owns several large format CNC machines (that can cut up to 1" thick aluminum, as well as any other material), as well as screen printing and digital print decal capabilities in house. Just wondering if there would be a better way to make these to make them more reasonable to the consumer while being more profitable for you. Contact me if you'd like more info!

I have just noticed the post from Maurice regarding the film cleaner on eBay, I did purchase some of this and in my opinion it smells and acts just like neat IPA that you can buy very cheaply on eBay, I did contact the supplier although obviously he did not reveal the formula he did say it contained a small amount of lubricant, but I found after it had evaporated in a couple of days there was no lubricating effect, but it will indeed clean the film just like IPA. As I do not like to use IPA on my films I ended up disposing of the said cleaner, I would love to have the formula for Thermofilm that was always my favourite.
