    Hi there, we have switched gears and no longer feel there should be minimum orders since all projects and knifemakers have different needs. We are here to service everyone who wants quality parts.

    Professional grade parts off our Flow XD waterjet.
    Fixed head machines can not produce square edges or accuracy that we do.
    If you want to increase your quality and efficiency send us templates we can convert to CAD files or call to discuss CAD files required to make quality parts.

    Here's an example of gimping cut on a fiber laser vs XD waterjetting on CPM steel.
    The laser is faster but the WJ edge is ready to finish.
    If you just need profiles from full sheets and no holes and feature we can laser them more cost effectively but if you want nice clean corners the Dynamic WJ process make excellent parts.
    We can make your through put increase dramatically with a little planning. Unless you like to tell customers you have a 5 year backlog... :)

    Line on line cut is .035" on one side and .025" on opposite. The example above is .040" cut on dynamic mode.

    I am working on a tricky design. Once I get it right, can I send you some blanks made from 01 steel, you scan it, and then make X number of copies from AEB-l? Can you make precise holes, say 3/32" in diameter? Also, if I wanted to add a little meat to certain areas to allow flexibility for fitting by hand, is that easily done? What thicknesses of AEB-l could I get? 5/64", 3/32"?
