The tooling block's back in stock! With all of 3 units available, heh.

And I've been working with a CNC shop to make a polycarbonate version. The reduced hole count makes it cheaper to produce, while still being as capable as the original, and polycarbonate being lighter, it's cheaper to post too. Plus, it just looks really cool.

I might be a bit late to the party, what happened to the polycarbonate version?

I put it up on Tindie for a fundraiser, and nobody backed it - the aluminium version is more expensive, but far more popular.

(Sorry to resurrect a long-dead thread, but I think that this is useful enough to justify it.)

Ever since nickjohnson's stock ran out, there hasn't been any way to get Stencil8 fixture plates. I've started manufacturing them and selling them at a similar price and intend to do so indefinitely.

One of these links should always work:

Hope this helps somebody!
