Aluminum Pickup Rings

Would anybody be interested in 1/8" (.125" the original are around .070" thick) thick pickup rings made of aluminum. I can anodize them mostly any color, or I can buff them to a mirror polish. They will be flat on the bottom not any sort of radius. They will fit the standard pickup size. I'm trying to see if there is any interest for people to want and buy these before I go ahead and order the aluminum to make them. I'll put up pictures of some prototypes I made out of 1/4" (.250") aluminum.

Re: Aluminum Pickup Rings

that certainly looks good. I guess it would depend on the price and what it would cost extra to get it to match the color of other hardware.

Re: Aluminum Pickup Rings

Are these hand-milled or CNC milled?

The ones in the pictures were done with a wire edm machine. If I were to make more I'd cut them with a cnc water jet.
