Water jet cut 1/2" aluminum with router cut and engraved walnut covers. Quick and fun little job!

Nice Geoff, That would be a cool niche industry to get into, being the source for small run tap handle manufacturing. Do you have a water-jet, or did you outsource them?

Thanks John!

I outsource the waterjet stuff, it's seems to be pretty reasonable for the small stuff I've had done. Although I got quite a range in prices when I had some things quoted. I ended up using a shop quite a ways away because the were 1/3 the price. These were about $25 each including shipping.

When I first saw these I could see us making them with the Wazer waterjet cutter we have coming toward the end of the year.
