My "Making the Shredder" Story
I have downloaded the document collection, and printed every PDF about the Shredder.
This is the week I will be finding a shop to do the laser cutting. I will discuss and get a few quotes.
Ah! I do apologise for not continuing the story.
I contacted 2 plasma cutter and one water-jet cutter services for quotes to cut out all the stainless steel parts.
The water-jet cutter quoted $1140+GST (like VAT) which is way over the budget I had in mind for this.
One of the plasma cutters kindly advised me that for such small scale parts, plasma cutting would give a rough finish and recommended that I get the work done by a water-jet cutter.
So I decided that this project was a bit ambitious for my means, and that I would explore other shredder options. So I notified the other plasma cutter (who was very slow in responding, even though there was a lot of email exchange about file formats and converting – I did the file conversion for him!) that I was no longer pursuing the project in this form, and not to put any more time into preparing his quote.
So I am at an end with this for now.
