To avoid starting a new thread just to ask a simple question, I think I'll just bump this one.

Has anyone tried using 3/4" OD compression fittings (e.g. NCIX.com - Buy Bitspower G1/4 Straight Compression Fittings for 1/2IN ID 3/4IN OD Tubing (Pair) - BP20103 In Canada.) with this block? The block surface seems crowded enough using standard 1/2" barbs, I'm not sure that the compression fittings will work...

You can but you need to use bitspower 45 degree or their 90 degree fittings to use compression fittings. Here is mine using 45's.

Ok, I phoned them; They will be closed till August 4th. The guy has concerns on how to plate those so they look nice without "unpainted " spots from wire or from lying in a shelf. Other then that, service cost just a couple bucks per piece.

We agreed, that I will bring parts and show him, so we can decide.

So guys, I can try to plate one part and we will see how it looks.... If you want me to plate your blocks, you will have to send them to me somehow. Most of the cost will be shipping.... :) But you can save, if you pick up something from Dazmode store on the way, he-he.

Daz, would you be able to offer the service for just the plating if I were to send you mine?
I am going to be building a second LC rig in the near future, so I might be able to combine that with ordering stuff from your shop.

Guys, as long as you pay shipping and plating costs, I don't mind to take other peps blocks with me.

I just wonder how we will mark parts, so they won't mixed up....

Good stuff Daz! Could you also ask on what method they use for plating. I believe there is 2. One where the nickel clumps up and the corners, and one where its all even and nice.

Hmmmm i guess i can pick up the tubing on the shipping back of my HK. :)
