Looking into having Diehl 12” cage badges reproduced and trying to determine the need/want for them.  The cost per badge will be reflective of the quantity.  If you are interested please let me know how many you would like, I am hopeful the price will be comparable to the badges Donald Coleman sells for less than $40.00 each.

Being a retired tool and die maker, The cost of making the die alone will be expensive.... More than likely you will never recoup your original investment, This is why I have not done it.. and I have a friend who has his own CNC machine and a 3-D scanner...

David aside from your remarks of doubt do you want any?  I am fully aware of the drawbacks and am planning on forging ahead as they are not available.

I will be working with Louis Luu to produce the badges in the next few weeks, I will report back on our progress and viability of producing them at a reasonable cost.  If this goes well I will explore reproducing ECK and Jandus.

Here is a sample of the parts I casted in steel and bronze.  Double levers, ECK struts, miscellaneous part...doohicky to hold the ECK motor.

The Jandus is actually easy to cast...thick enough....unless there I am unaware of different types. I have the C-frame one.
