I should have been more clear on the machinable wax.

Its actually wax (candles, paraffin) melted together with plastic bac (IIRC LDPE).

here is some link on how to make your own.

Re: Buildlog.net Arduino Compatible Stepper Shields availabl

@ejs, I commend your honesty upfront and I believe the market will respond accordingly. I do have a small request/recommendation for your kit and I have posted this already with the other forum.
