I’ve held back from posting my current price sheet as it’s very subject to change. However a lot of people are wanting to price out their build so they can make a proper deposit. Please use this as a rough guideline for what your build may cost. If you are interested in using exotic materials not listed, assume you have to also pay for the material, but I’m wiling to entertain anything. Please don’t ask too many questions about this sheet, again I’m posting it for reference so you can figure out a deposit. Thanks!
Base Price (All Brass, Stainless screws, No Trits): $175. Below are the upcharges for the materials I have on hand. The price increase is partially material cost, but mainly reflects the additional time it takes me to machine the harder metals – my machine is small and I need to use slow millingtechniques in order to cut the tougher metals. There’s about 10-15 hours machining (7 Custom machined parts) and 4 hours finishing in each Torqbar. 31 total parts. These prices will inevitably change as I hope to improve my techniques and machinery to bring the price down, but this is the best I can do right now and still maintain a level of quality I can stand behind.

ETA’s cannot be estimated until I have a feel for my production speed on my new equipment. Otherwise it’s just a guess that will either piss you off or get your hopes up 😉
Keep in mind this is pretty outdated and needs refreshing — I’m hoping to put a configurator online, as I have one built out in excel. If anyone wants/needs an accurate quote on a build, PM me and I’ll put it together for you.
