btw: the multi holes in the 2nd grill are 1/4" diameter, plenty of airflow.
Is it one solid piece or a frame+grill insert like you're classic billit fan? btw, bringing back any 120's of that version?

No, these new grills are one piece! We're replacing the old version. We've got better milling equipment now that will improve our capabilities.These are just the beginning of a new line of products. Don't let the looks of the multi-hole version fool you, those are 1/4" diameter holes for improved ventilation.

These grills were cnc milled from 3/16" thick 6061 aluminum.


Currently you can buy these 120mm CNC Machined Billet fan grills (3/16" thick) now in Mnpctech's webstore

I've got a friend who owns and runs a machine shop, so I know what kind of skill it takes to put out something like this. Very nice work... very nice.

Nice, that is a step up in quality...but still like the old ones too for when I want to make my own grill or different type of mesh.

You guys still contracting out your milling or have you taken the plunge and gotten your own equipment? I've been shopping for second hand stuff around here but it's pricey.

I've started a new contract. I have to run the business side of things. The other outfit couldn't meet demand.

I'm in Kenyon, MN. About an hour south of Minneapolis where you guys are. But, I'll be living in Minneapolis in the fall, so we will have to work something out sometime!
