Ever wondered where to get a heatsink made? Came across a company called MyHeatSinks.com today that essentially fullfills that role.
The companies' website has a neat video of skivved heatsinks being cut along with tons of resources in their learning center, including this fin heatsink calculator. Fantastic resource for general understanding of modern heatsink design methods... the company even covers standard heatsink mounting hardware.
