I here you guys talking about haveing blade blanks cut out by water jets so I'm guessing some people/ places don"small jobs" and that it doesn't cost $1000's
How much does it cost and what is the minimum size order for this type of work? I'm asking because I want a set of French curve rulers, you know the plastic shape drawing things like these:

But I want them in steel so I can cut with a razor blade using them. I did a good Internet such and it looks like they only come in aluminum and plastic. A few threads by people like me looking for them over the years, but that's it. Apparently they were made of steel in the old days but I don't want to have to wait for a set to pop up on eBay.
