    I cut with a regular hand held jig saw and use about one blade per piece. I have done more hand planes than knives, butt the knives are catching up fast!

    I wanted to start using my jig saw instead of my grinder. Can I turn the blade on metal like wood and what kind of blades do you use?

    Aldo, I can't wait till you offer this service yourself in house. Shipping to MI would be a killer.

    I use Bosch blades and drill holes where I need to change directions. Curves are problematic, but gentle ones or no problem, as in the cutting edge profile.

    Do you have any idea how much a single prototype blade might cost, ballpark?

    Do you mean starting up a $200,000 dollar water jet machine and making "1" piece?

    Have a number of makers commit to your service (in writing) for the minimum of two years in exchange for top notch customer service and good price. No?

    From what I've seen, most companies charge 5-10 dollars a piece depending on quantity. Sometimes there is also a setup fee. I imagine once the cad drawings are in the system, the setup fee is waved on subsequent orders.
