I am but a first round of surgery and other family obligations have kept me from working out the last of the kinks in my CNC as well as sourcing the right material to keep the price where I'm aiming for.

I may go back to MDF for the material since it's relatively inexpensive and stable, but it's susceptible to water damage which I was trying to avoid and ridiculously messy to mill.

Ok, at this point I think we're beyond the Market Research portion of this project and have identified that there is definitely interest.

The alpha piece has been in use in my shop for the last month or so and I can't figure out how I lived without it now that it's stocked up and at my finger tips.

The first version will be the one shown in post #82 that has SAE, Metric and Letter as shown. A future version will likely be created for the most common "kitless" makers tool kit which includes taps and matching drill bits as well as die holders, but that will be down the road a bit.

I have some hurdles to overcome with an upcoming surgery and subsequent 7 weeks off my feet. During that time I can work on tweaking the CAD design and some final challenges with materials and hopefully being to turn out some meaningful end products.
