This is why I suggested the cnczone rfq area (albeit long time since I've even looked there).There's plenty of machinist or wannabe machinist in garage shops around the country that will machine parts for pennies over cost of the material so they will have something to do. Just have to find them.
Hi im looking for someone ,(company or individual ) who can make few parts out of 6061-t6 ,local machinist shops are way out of my budget.
What are you building, and what parts do you need made?Jany, why don't you post a drawing here so we can see what you're talking about?
Hmmm, I'll call your bluff! Prove that statement, and I won't even make you define "plenty". I'll settle for a few. So, list 3 or 4 machinists or "wannabes" in your area who will machine parts for pennies over cost. Qualify that by saying anything more than 99 cents over cost makes the argument false.There's plenty of machinist or wannabe machinist in garage shops around the country that will machine parts for pennies over cost of the material so they will have something to do.

I visit Colorado a couple of times a year, so I'd like that info, please!I have a pair of machinists in Colorado that can make anything I want and do so at reasonable costs. One of them is the best machinists I have ever known, loves working in Titanium, and has never given me a bad part.
If you are really stuck, and are willing to pay reasonable (not high and not low) prices then I will be glad to pass on thier information.
