    this is the sort of thing the local pc shop should have and charge you £15 a time to use it

    Certainly does seem a little pricey but, it does look like it works well, with less risk of damage to CPU or hands.

    If I was ever of the mind to delid my cpu, this would be an instant purchase really.

    Better to spend a bit on a sure thing, than blow £200+ on a new processor.

    Small market, he's not making them for £1 each in china and then selling millions to recoop his investment.

    The best solution would be to buy a delided then resealed with liquid metal cpu - I saw one company in America that offered delid+reseal for $50 (http://siliconlottery.com/). You could buy a cpu off them and pay the $50?

    It's expensive because it's milled from a lump of billet.

    The plastic print out option is probably cheaper.

    TBH looking at it I reckon with a few design tweaks it could have been designed to be modular, working for any family/model of cpu

    I imagine if you have the block the top could be changed to suit any cpu?

    Mates could club in and buy one, or as someone said, buy one and offer a chargeable service.

    I understand why it's expensive but its hardly going to sell many at that price surely.

    I suspect it wouldn't have the structural integrity. It looks like there is quite a bit of force exerted by the mechanism and you wouldn't want it to flex.

    It's a clever idea though. CNC'ing small batches from aluminium certainly would incur costs of that magnitude.

    I suspect you are right. Printed plastic also tends to change size as it cools. You couldn't get the same precision as you would with machined delron.
