Shops around here seem to like dicking me around...

Anyone (preferably in the southern midwest) with access to a CNC or Waterjet cottung machine? I need some flat brackets cut. I have money in hand!!!

There's a member on here, lococnc, he organized a group by on some windscreens. I believe that's what he does (hence the "cnc" in lococnc). I think he was out of Houston. I'm only mentioning him because he handled the group by very well and refunded money when some of the screens weren't availabe. He's a trustworthy guy. I don't know what he charges.

Go to that thread, you can PM him from there possibly.

My college buddy owns wire EDMs (2 or 3 of them - they cost $100k or more each). Those guys charge $50/hr and hate small "one of" jobs. Traditional "low tech" machining might make more sense.

Water jet is hard to find and over kill for what you need. Depending on how thick the stock is, I'd use a good sturdy jig saw. If you have a steady hand, a plasma cutter will do OK as well, then touch up with a grinder or file.

Shoot me a PM there is a Waterjet company nearby me, I'll bring them a pic and ask them what it takes to cut those rear fender covers. I don't need one cause my bike came with one.

BTW its in Central VA, everyone says they are a great company and I have seen their work a few times on race cars and other go faster parts.
