    *Update #1* The Delrin Gear racks called for in the parts/price list will be replaced with Oiled Steel by the end of June. Also the 6061 T6 Alum plate sets should be ready to ship by then. Email or check FB for more info.

    The Delrin ones will still be available. I've been working toward steel ones anyway, thinking the plastic version would be poorly received by folks.

    * Update #2* The T6 aluminum plate sets have arrived, will be finish milling and ceramic coating them for a week or so. Also, the steel gear racks are on hold, the machine shop fell through last minute. The plastic racks will be ready to go around the same time as the plates.

    Got the first half batch of the plates sets back from being ceramic coated today. I'm excited, they look great!

    I plan to also have the first round of the gear racks ready to go next week. Will post more when I can.

    Mike, why did you have the plated ceramic coated?

    Short answer: the boat builder I work for is an authorized Cera-Kote service provider.

    Long answer: my co-worker has been doing ceramic coating on everything from rifles and handguns to fishing reels and so much more, and is the one to bring the service to our employer. I felt better about passing the job to someone local that I trust and can talk to vs. more outsourcing.

    I'm incredibly impressed by the durability of the coatings on a wide range of substrates, and the color options are awesome.

    Is there a difference between ceramic coating and powder coating?
