I wasn’t per se referring to another Heavy-6 run, but more referring to my production runs of various designs. I definitely haven’t given any thought to another run of the Heavy-6. I’ve been trying to do radically different designs in sequence rather than running a bunch of the same thing over and over (like I did with the Norbatouch). Quite simply, it’s just more fun and creatively satifying.
Anyway, to address your specific point, I think I could get you a set of riser feet for maybe like $200 or so in aluminum (I did create and test a design that works fine and looks nice—more or less a version of what I did on the Norbaforce), but I just couldn’t in good conscience bring myself to put such tiny parts at such a high price in the GB. (This would work best on the powder-coat finishes, since bead-blast/anodizing from different batches doesn’t always match up perfectly.) I’m not really sure why these quote out at such a high price; I think it is because of the fixturing required to hold the workpiece rigid all the way down to the thin end of the wedge of the riser.
