Subject: sapphire wire standoff quote

We are thinking of replacing a few metal parts in the suspension with sapphire/ruby. We want to replace the standoff (which is Al) with sapphire and also the top plate where the wire is clamped.

For the top, we should make a cutout for a little plate in the existing crossbar. In the cutout would go a little mounting plate. Then the clamping plate (which is now steel) we would also replace with a Sapphire one.

I don't think it matters whether its sapphire or ruby, just has to be very hard.

Can you please get some quotes on the parts?
