PRICE IS FOR A PAIR (2 PCS)
Hand polished aluminum, 3.40 long o.a. x .15 nominal bow width x .06 thick. Laser cut with rolex grained edge and mirror bright polish both top & bottom. Nice stiff part will keep it shape unlike a softer stamped part.
Price is for a PAIR, (2) units. Fits Art Asylum toy phasers and fiberglass kits, as well as most other kits. Photo shows pair.
The aluminum is NOT ANODIZED and is of a more workable alloy type than others on the market. Why?, I used a special 6063-T5 (HE-6) un-anodized aluminum because it is workable by a prop builder. Anodizing hardens the material surface and that’s not always good because anodizing makes it difficult work the component. Notably anodizing makes it hard to; machine, grain and/or, further polish, the component.
I want you to have options: This component is easy to; mirror polish to brilliance, drill, file, acid weather, rolex grain and, do anything else you can come up with, your the prop builder and I say have some fun! I also do not like anodizing because it does not look “prop authentic” to the 1960’s TV show.

The reason I made some of these to sell was in response to many many inquiries on my YouTube “startrekguy 2012” channel.
