Light Box Logo Cut On A Water Jet!

  • Published on Sep 16, 2016
  • I'm visiting the Cut in Half Channel, and he's cutting up a 1/3 hp motor and a mother board for me!
    I then decided that the motherboard would look super cool as a LED shop sign! I'll show you all the steps, for this simple and my unusual take on the project. (I think you knew that was coming)
    Check out the Cut in Half Channel:

    Peter, with a water jet, it is not the water at the incredibly high-pressure that does the actual cutting, it is the garnet or other abrasive in the water stream that does the actual cutting. There is a desktop water jet on Kickstarter that may be of interest to you as this is an awesome machine.

      We talked about that too. Crazy powerful & super destructive,

    • Jeffrey Vastine

      Cool! The high pressure water will do a number on your body too!

    • Peter Brown
      Peter Brown  3 years ago +3

      For the record. The motherboard was cut solely with the water. No abrasive.
      The motor, of course, needed the garnet.

    Hey Peter! You should check out Braille Skateboarding and watch their series "You make it, we skate it!" I think it would be awesome if you made some wheels or a board for them! Like something out of resin or some resin wheels turned on a lathe with something cool inside!

    Why is it that in the video where he cleaned his mat with the same resin, it had the consistency of rubber, but here it has the consistency of plastic?

      I let it harden longer. That's the only difference.
