I can do anything guys. Time and price are going to be ridiculous. Sorry. Find someone with a cnc plasma cutter. They pratically can cut for free but nowhere near the same quality

I have a waterjet friend, it's a good deal. Had him cut the hard cuts when I was tiling my basement. Gotta love perfect circles

waterjet has its place. They're great for cutting very thick materials.
My lasers can cut paper, ceramic, and glass

Waterjet friend just stopped by to drop of a aluminum flange that he cut and said that his work is getting a laser rig next Thursday and he is going to be the main operator. He showed me a video of this thing and it is massive. He says $650,000 for it. They were averaging $300,000 in outsourcing a year so this seems like a good investment. My beadlocks are all drawn up and ready to go as a "training" cut.

I even work with wood
My old closet size pantry with those hideous wire shelves(5)
So much wasted space!!


Now this is a much better improvement!! Installed a recessed flood light on its own switch, paint, laser cut horse shoe shelves(6), and some trim to jazz it up

Yes. I had to mill in a 2mm deep pocket to attach that bracket to get the derailer to work. I got that GT mountain bike for next to free too from our marketplace
