Now my Truly poses can stand up again! An exact replica of my original plastic stand that was made on a CNC machine out of solid aluminium...so it can be painted and I can absolutely make more! YAY!

Ooh! You planning on selling any? Hit me up if so! I have a Truly who just can’t keep her balance even though my Magic Star has no problem.

Hi Tak and JadeCade,

Yes, I can sell if you like...just have to work out what my costs are per unit before coming up with a price. I can do shipping within Canada or from Sumas, WA through a package fulfillment service. I'm not on ebay or etsy (yet) because I'm mostly just an enthusiast and not a true collector of Ponies but I'm considering it, because I keep creating these things that I genuinely hope other people need and can use. Does anyone have a strong preference for where to sell?
I currently have 2 extras so you can each have one right away...Pm me for further convos, and thanks for your input!

ahh but are they aluminum?? haha Honestly, if I wind up not selling ANY I don't care...mostly it was a project to entertain myself.

Ooh ooh ooh! Can we see one of your ponies on them? Pretty please with a cherry on top.

What is a CNC machine...? I feel very unknowledgable.
it's a machine hooked up to a computer where simply told you make the thing you want the machine to make in a program and then the machine does it be it lazers, cutters or waterjet - there are many different cnc machines. it's like a very expensive cookie cutter XD

Interesting... so not a 3D printer. A machine that CUTS material...?

I have one for wood and one for metal. The computer reads code to move the spindle to cut the shape that you want out of whatever material you choose. A really common thing people will see and understand are aluminium rims for cars. Those are usually CNC-ed out of a solid block of metal.

PS Thanks for answering these questions Cannibalcow...very knowledgeable! Do you have a CNC or have you used on before?
