I just got a quote for $50 in Reno.

Hey Rughty, I would love to know where you were quoted $50 in Reno. I live up at the lake and have a board I am thinking of splitting.
Thanks



Here is the email with quote. I ended up using a jigsaw because I was even too cheap for the $50, especially since it wasn't a brand new solid. I use these guys a bunch for my regular job. They also cut the round disc's I modified for my DIY interface.

Ken,

The waterjet kerf is .030". That is how much material it will take out of the middle of your snow board. Cost $50.

Hey all-

I'm looking for some people who want water jet cuts in Colorado-

I have found a water jet cutter-(he is not in Colorado- but I would like to ship the boards from one location)

he is charging $80 a cut but has cut well over 100 boards. He has assured me of his quality of work, extra strait, extra thin!. So we can trust his work.


I was looking for two others who wanted to get there boards split, I will cover shipping both ways. ( Please be located in Colorado)

send me a pm if interested

I had 2 boards water cut here in Germany.

It was their first, and that is also how the result was. My main reason for the water jet was the middle inserts of the Burton 3D insert pattern (I've always hated that). I didn't want to remove the inserts before the cut, not to have more holes in the base than neccessary, and the carpenters I went to refured to cut through the inserts.

I'm never having a board water cut again. The cut turned out lousy, but the boards were not destroyed.

The kerf of a circular table saw is anywhere between 3 - 5 mm (0.11 - 0.2 inches) depending on the blade.

Is that too much of width loss for must of you?

Please take a caliper an set it to 3
