    I received this quote from NorthWest Wire EDM for waterjet-cut panels in 1/4″ Masonite:

    Gregory,

    Sorry for the delay, I have Mondays off. The cost of your batch of parts will be $125 plus shipping. FYI, the cost would drop considerably if you ordered 3 or more sets, since most of the cost is in handling! 3 sets would cost you about $225 plus shipping. Let us know what you think. Lead time is about 2 days right now.

    Thanks for the opportunity to quote your parts, Eric, NWWEDM 509-893-0885

    Anybody else want to go in on a set?

    Sure – you can write me at Gregory dot Bloom at gmail dot com.

    I plan on waiting until next Friday (April 30th) before ordering to see if anyone else wants in.

    All,

    This sounds great! One thought: Some users have been having trouble accessing the layers within our CAD files. You may want to check one more time that this company isn’t charging you for only a fraction of the total number of panels. If the price is indeed for the whole set, I don’t think you’ll find a better deal anywhere.

    @Taylor – Thanks for the caution. Sadly, NWWEDM confirmed that the quote was for sheet #1 only. Whatever software they’re using evidently doesn’t do layers. I’ll see if I can bust it into seven separate dxf files (unless you already have each sheet broken out?).

    Well, turns out a ballpark for all 7 sheets is $800 plus shipping. They also said a laser cut would be a lot sharper for this material (masonite). $800 is too rich for me. (Dang – it sure was sounding good there for a while).
