Looking for some plasma work?

Figured I would post this here, since the plasma table guys hang out more here than the wanted ads I'm sure.

I need a few pieces cut for my TJ outboard project. I don't want to spend the ridiculous price for prefabbed towers, so I want to build my own. I am hoping someone can cut the pieces for me on a plasma table so I don't have to do it all with the grinder. Hopefully at a much more reasonable price.

I'll attach a drawing of what I'm looking for to the next post. Hopefully I included enough detail so it is easy to understand.


It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.

Here's my drawing. Everything would be cut from 3/16" plate.

Tried your local community college or trade school? A lot of them offer CNC classes or have it as part of fabrication courses. They'd likely be happy to cut it for you for the practice if you provide the material. I know the one I attend lets us do stuff like this for people and is always looking for volunteers for this sort of thing.

Quite honestly, I didn't think of that, but I don't think its practical for what I need. Especially since I don't have any 3/16" laying around. I'm hoping one of the guys on here with a table can cut them for me. I'm sure at least one of them has a sheet of 3/16" already laying on the table.
