$20 a pair plus shipping? First class would be cheap.

If you do end up needing plywood ones, I can CNC cut them pretty easily. Let me know.

Probably the way to go for what you're asking for. I'm confident the PLA will be fine and intend to build my Ultimate with them.

I'd be happy to share my STL.

Nat Kinsey at UpscaleCNC does great work too!
Nat absolutely does. These rings could cause issues for him because the space between the tubes is .041", meaning that additive printing or laser cutting should result in a cleaner product. Routing could cause a lot of headaches.

Don't think it'd be a huge challenge for him... He's done some pretty interesting stuff for me before :flyingpig:
