    I have a friend who needs twelve (12) 25mm M12 bolts made from PEEK (this stuff).

    He knows it will be a bit expensive, so please if you want a bit of cash let me know your price!

    Can no-one help? I thought it would be easy on a CNC lathe?

    I was tempted to have a pop just for the love of science (Iíve never touched peek)
    I canít find an application for the stuff personallyÖ. Way to pricy and time is just a little short to justify doing it to salve my curiosity.
    Iím sure someone will have a go if you keep pressing.

    Application? You don't want to know! ;)

    P.S. You don't need to do it for curiosity, you can have money!

    Having googled 'machining PEEK', it doesn't look especially difficult so I suppose I could do it. It's an expensive gamble though...

    The big question is what kind of head is required on the bolt?
    If it's a hex head, then it adds to the level of complexity.

    I'd offer, but I've just not got any time right now.
