Laser cut parts in Omaha, Ne

Does anybody in the midwest need laser cut parts? I am having the local guys cut parts for my Mamba version and wanted to know if anyone around the midwest wanted me to price having your cut out as well, we might be able to get a price break if I could get a few people going in on this. Right now they are very slow so they might shoot me a good price to keep the machine busy. I am running the Mamba version down there tomorrow to have them quote it out for me.

Thanks,

Curt

I am in Wichita Kansas, and would be interested in getting the laser cut parts. Will you be getting a quote on the bending as well? Thanks.

Actually I have been working with Pre Wel in the past and they have a huge laser out there. I hope to be hearing back from them this week. They are slowing down out there and hopefully since they are slow why will give me a good price to keep the machine busy instead of sitting there doing nothing.
If the price is right I may have them weld up some of my stuff to make sure it is straight.
Ratman are you in Omaha as well?
Are you thinking about making a Mamba as well? if so maybe we can order parts together and cut down on shipping.
I am located in the Millard area, 13704 P st. right next to Jiffy Lube

later,

Curt

Not Omaha but the way Omaha keeps moving west I will be a resident in a few years, I have an acerage near Wahoo actually closer to Mead. I have not made up my mind just yet, I really like the design, very simple. The best thing of all, the plans are free! I really like the use of V bearings a lot closer to my budget. I've been pricing Linear bearings, even off of E-bay they are expensive.

I almost bought the plans for a Rockliff Machine until I found the Mamba, it made me rethink my plan. This is my first attempt to build anything like this and I thought I would have to scale my plans down due to the costs of the Linear bearings. I think I can swing a 4' x 8' cutting area table with this design.

I mentioned Benson because the company I work for is currently using them for a couple of special projects. I highly recomend them very good cuts, and very precise bends. Cost is dependant on how precise you need them to be. I know they are very busy, I thought about firing off the drawings to them to get a quote. Nebraska is a small place I thought if this was who you were working with I would hold off until you posted again. One of the draftsmen that works for us had worked for Benson that's how we got hooked up with them. I'm not sure if I have an in, but we are throwing more and more business there way so it surely can't hurt to see if I can get a deal. We could probably compare pricing to see what the best deal would be. I'm still working the costs out so I stay on budget regardless what I do either build the Mamba or a hybrid Mamba, I'm going to start on it this winter.

Stay low!

I'm a maybe depending on the price. I have a nephew that wanted to run my parts on his CNC milling machine at his work but I don't know what kind of free time he has. If it's too expensive then I'll wait for him to do it but if the price is right, I'll have a talk with him and let him know that I'm having it done.

I'm in Wisconsin by the way.

Will this kit include the jig to grind the rails?

I am planning on including the grinding skate in every version I cut - regardless if you need it or not. The skate is a marvelous tool, and will repair damaged rail that is machined as well as manufacture the rail. I feel that every MM owner should have the skate to "dress" the rails if needed.
Shipping should be pretty cheap....about 40 dollars or so. Cheaper if you can wait 10 days or so and it can go super slow truck economy!

smreish,

I don't know if it helps, but IMO you should add in a $100 convenience fee per kit for getting this done, because I am thinking... 20 bucks an hour * 5 hours... Wow that would be a pretty good deal, for everybody involved, because you are gonna do a lot of work to move around and ship 10 kits, and it might seem overwhelming if you were not getting a cut...

Shipping

You might be able to have the laser company take care of the shipping for you. Nearly every company around has to send parts out of state and they may be able to take care of it more efficiently.

Just a suggestion.

Finally got the price in for Laser cutting and bending all of the parts with options.
My guy will do it for $560 each for 10 kits
This is out of Omaha and can check shipping to whatever location you will be needing it sent to.
Let me know if you want it done and I will be getting orders together if that price is OK?
prismsigns@cox.net is the fastest way to get a hold of me.

Thanks,

Curt

I think the price that Sean (Orlando) was going to get was less than $500 and I don't think shipping would be that much. The price he had from Tampa was less and he has found a place in Orlando that might be lower. If he doesn't respond. I will call him Thursday and see if he has heard any thing and pass it on to you.
