    Both artans and I from RTEAM have used Macrofab. I'd say our experience with them has been fine. You pay a premium (as opposed to some place like OshPark) but you don't have to go through the hassle...

    Just to be clear. Do this at your own risk and we take no liability for the outcome. R-Team does this to all our AX-12 Servos (60+ so far) and has had no issues.
