New Quadra 700 Feet

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Thinking of making a batch of Quadra 700 feet. Would anyone be interested? Are designed exactly like the originals, since I have a set on hand to measure and copy.

 

Just want to see if there is any interest... Would be ready beginning of next month maybe? Maybe a little later?

Thanks Trash, believe that that run ran out a year or two ago?


I now remember I had another thread like this a while ago, with you saying "Don't knock mj's feets, kid, if you could pull it off even half as well it would be plenty good enough. My set rocks!"

 

Challenge acceptedB)

Updates will be posted here. So far have the model made and everything measured down to .001". Waiting for shipping of materials needed!

 

This will be considered batch 02 then?

Yep, just thought some of information on materials and processes in that thread might be of help.

I think it's great that you're taking up that challenge.B)

 

Have you found a rubbery material that can be printed? If not, I suggest printing a mold and casting form a material that won't skitter around on a shelf.

 

Alternately, you could model a circular indentation on the outer bottom side of the feets. Recess the round non-skid/no-mar rubbery pads available at you local big box or a real hardware store. You'd want the barest of minimum protrusion so the pads function as designed, but don't raise your feets more than a hairline off surface.

 

Good luck, I'll want a set for quality control.:lol:

 

 

p.s. gear up to do Ho Chi Minhs for the IIcx/IIci/Q700 while you're at it. They're in short supply, but not quite as alarming as the rapid extinction of 610/6100 feets. Neither of those has ever been done. If you need an example of either, let me know.

Mission success! First batch (Well, only had time for two...) came out perfect! 

 

Its TPU, so not exactly rubber, but flexible and somewhat grippy. Good enough for a Quadra!

 

They are Snow White colored, which is good and bad. The originals in ads looks very white, however the set of originals I have are light gray. So not exactly sure on how they should be colored? The edges to the "teeth" are a little messy, still working on them. They fit perfectly in my 700 and stay in place. 

 

Photo time!

Trash, thank you for your input. I'd be happy to try anything you'd want! I don't have either of those, so would just need measurements.

 

Unsure of what I would price these at, but obviously everyone here that's a member will get Them cheaper! Will also be listed on eBay.

 

Thinking $10 for four for members? Maybe we can work out a bundle deal if you need more than a set? eBay listed ones will probably be $15 ish... I think it was MJ who made the first batch, and was charging around that, so I'll keep it around there.

 

Anyways, will be making lots more tonight and tomorrow, and if anyone is interested in purchasing some, PM me! I'll respond as soon as possible.

Fabulous work, love it! I've got a broken 6100 feet I can send you. I don't have any of the sandals for IIcx/IIci, but someone could give you the height/width/depth in relation to the edge of the case you'd be good to go. You've already done all the hard work. It'll be easy to simplify your design to meet the rudimentary specs. of the Ho Chi Mins.

Sounds great Trash, and thank you! 

 

If you'd like, send me a PM and we can discuss the 6100... 

 

I believe I will be creating a trading post thread now, so check there for updates.

Very impressive! It's a shame there isn't a colour to more closely match the original grey. I'm lucky enough to have a set of these but I'm sure lots of people will be pleased with them.

Yeah I was really looking for that gray, but t was either really really expensive, or just didn't exist!

 

I have noticed some photos of the original Feet are actually white, not that gray. Not bright white, but white. 

 

Oh well. It will help brighten it up I suppose.

First set of four is complete! Came out pretty nice, few little artifacts on the edges I had to trim, but dimension and fit wise, perfect. Ill have to work on that...

 

I would THINK a dye would work... Hmmm.... Ill have to look around and see. That would be cool if it did.
