    @All
    Your comments will not go unheard, I have directed some members of Jesse's family to this thread.



    Fixed the pictures btw.

    Current progress: I'm in talks with a local precision machining shop to nail down a price to get some of the cutting and bending work done.

    Hopefully I will have a real update in the coming weeks.

    Greetings to one and all!

    My apologies for the infrequency of updates. I have prior engagements that I shall be rid of by the end of the coming week. Very excited for this, and other projects to come.

    Since my last update, I have worked out an arrangement with a local sheet metal shop. Bill Lawson and his boys from Metallica Mfg came highly recommended to me from various friends.

    Without further adieu, here are some glory shots of the copper monstrosity:


    Filing all the pieces. Rotary cutting, unsurprisingly, does not give as clean of an edge as waterjet.

    Panels, ready to transport

    Some printouts I made for the machinist to better understand the folds I am looking to achieve.

    Picture of part of the shop. They sure have many goodies in here!

    "What a machine!"

    Clean bends, very little marks on the metal.

    The metal itself clearly still needs a bit of work. Sanding, polishing, eventually laser engraving followed by a clear coat.

    Front panel is still very much unfinished in terms of filing.

    Hope you enjoyed,

    Thanks! I appreciate the support :)



    BTW, does anyone know why I am unable to send any PMs? I had a mod PM me and I have been trying to reply for the past little while. I don't even seem to be able to access my PM box without direct linking to it. I'm guessing there is a minimum post/join date quota that I need to reach before I am able to send my PMs?

    You need to reach 10 posts I believe. You can send emails now though.
