Re: Winged Seahorse FREE FREE FREE

Thanks for the file. It is a cut-throat world we live in. I watched a major heavy equipment manufacturer that I worked for rent a competitors machine and moved an engineers drawing board to the shop so he could measure and draw up parts from it as the machine was taken apart and reassembled. Another...

Re: PlasmaCam RENEGES on eBay Sales

While I have owned a Plasma Cam machine for over 15 years I understand their tactics to get the most $ for their products. No one is obligated to purchase their machines or software and other companies have offered excellent options to Plasma Cam. It's called competition. I loved the video! Dave Hanks

More dental art

Dentists have taken me for several thousand dollars in my lifetime and I intend to get some of it back! I want to see my artwork in Dentist offices everywhere. Cut this out of 14 gage.

NC Hummers

I finally had to design the North Carolina hummingbirds their own personalized feeder. I live about 1 1/4 miles from the NC line and they have been flying over and crapping all over my TN hummingbird feeder making a huge mess! Might have started a war here. :lol:

Re: Selling someone elses design

I had a picture copied from my website and posted on this forum asking someone to trace it a while back. If you post a decent picture on the internet it can be copied and traced. I have yet to see any picture copy protection that prevents a picture from being copied. Unless you have the $ to pursue ...

Re: Harley Davidson firepit

In general, a firepit this size that is personalized for someone, no Harley emblem just a design... price? With a simple design cut out probably $250-$400+ depending on the design. It would be cut out of .187"-.250" and welded. I very rarely do custom jobs so I'm not real sure on the pric...

Re: Harley Davidson firepit

Alright quick question.... how much would you charge for something like this? Welded not bolted though This is a prototype. I won't be able to answer that question until Harley Davidson approves it. Wish I could sell them as hundreds of Harleys cruise thru here on the weekends to ride: http://www.4...

Re: Showing off!

I am just learning to cut mirrors/glass on the water jet. I have only done silhouettes because our Vac Assist does not work correctly and with out it piercing tends to crack the piece. Since a silhouette is a continuous line, I set up the pierce for the lead in off the piece. We have very good luck...

Re: Showing off!

The deer silhouette is cut out of mirror. It was one of our first attempts on glass. How intricate do you think you can go with webs and small cutouts? How thick is the glass? Looks like it cuts square.....does it flare out in corners and are the edges smooth or do they need sanding? I have always ...

Here's a link to a dxf file that is too big to post on this forum. I think it originally was posted here and I fixed most of the glitches.....haven't cut it yet.

Before each use of my machine I sand the tip and electrode with 180 grit sandpaper in my lathe. A drill press would work just as well.

Re: Preventative Maintenance Schedule

Grind the paint off all surfaces that the bearings ride on as it will come off and cause problems with cutting. Blow out the bearings and Z axis screw with an air gun once a year and spray with Mystery oil (turn them and wipe off excess). Remove the Z and X axis carriage and do the same to all beari...

Hummer hanger

Cut this out of 16 gage stainless steel. Used stainless steel chain and stainless steel "S" hooks. I wonder if they will attack it. There must be 8 or 10 of them around the feeder I have out now.....hard to count them.....they are real fast.

Re: New projects

Cut these out of 16 gage stainless steel.....I think 14 gage would work better, but I got almost a 4' x 8' sheet of 16 gage stainless steel for cutting a Velociraptor for a friend of mine with a weld shop. (3) more Egyptian hangers to cut, then taking a break.

Cut these out of 16 gage 304 stainless steel. The first picture is a front tag that will go on my truck after painting the back plate hammered black. The last (2) pictures are planter or bird feeder hangers.

Re: King Tut and Nefertiti pyramid LED lamp

Thanks. I have 10 more Egyptian panels designed from Ptah to a scarab beetle to Isis. It actually looks better lit up live. Had to cut everything (3) times except Nefertiti due to engineering changes. Been a real challenge!
