    R&D Tax credit is pretty easy. Any salary workers, you can claim a percentage of their time to go towards the credit. I think for the engineers we use something like 70% of their time is for R&D.

    How big is the part?

    .010" flat is not very hard to achieve. Make it from larger stock and just mill it flat. If you want to get the stress out, run it on a vibrating table or bake it before...

    For sure. They make the same thing in a 2 port, 4 port, 8 port, and 16 port set up. I used the 4 port versions where I had a cell of machines.
