I'm semi retired & take in odd engineering jobs.
The latest to come up causes a bit of a problem, I cant do part of it
with my existing equipment!
The job wont make that much profit, so its not worth investing more than
$1000 in equipment to do it.
It will come up with VERY short lead times and MUST be done on time, so
I cant outsource it.
The jobs a bit difficult to describe, but...
Imagine a piece of a jigsaw puzzle.
Some of the pieces are about 3 inches square and some around 25 inches
Some of the edges are curves like a puzzle piece, and some a straight
and meet in a 'V'
Some of the pieces are 3mm thick and some 6mm thick.
The accuracy required isnt that great, the example of a jigsaw puzzle
would be about right for the accuracy and finish required.
The only idea that springs to mind is a manual plasma cutter and use a
template to cut around.
But I've never used a plasma cutter. If it would do the job, its within
Will this work?
Many Thanks for any help or ideas
