Default Doing something stupid, need a flange cut.

Who has a CNC mill or can cut me an aluminum NB intake flange?

PM humming, he has gotten some stuff water jetted before.

Also call around your local shops, I found someone who could do it real cheap, they were actually a masonry shop, but had a water jet.

I think bbundy had a drawing of it which could then be used at most machine shops/water jet cutters

How quickly do you need one? I posted in the other thread, but I am working on getting these digitized and available. I don't have a time frame yet as they were lower on my todo list, but I have asked my machinist about it.

I need to get a count of how many people would be interested in purchasing one of these awesome flanges? My machinist said he could do them, but I have to order a few to get it started. I am working on getting numbers right now. I don't have a ton of cash personally to hold stock of them, but if I can get enough interest I can get the first set made. Then the shop would be able to make more as needed.

What price point would you guys be willing to pay? Would there still be interest if I required payment up front to get them into production?

Considering I have no real idea to base my estimate off since I have no experience purchasing custom water jetted pieces. I'd pay $100-$150 for something like that. I'd probably be saving cost going to a aftermarket intake manifold that fits a honda. I guess as long as I can swap to using a honda manifold under the cost completely of just paying someone to make me a custom intake manifold. If that makes sense.

I would also be interested in picking up a flange! Don't mind paying in advance.

I may be interested in a couple, if you can get us a price point.
I'd prepay with a solid ETA

Yeah I can tell you it probably won't be anywhere near that cheap.

Once I get details on pricing I will make a list of who all is interested and see if I can get enough people in. The shop I use is pretty good, I generally get a 3-4 week turn around when I am buying exhaust flanges in bulk.

I'll probably try and find waterjetting then. Cheaper is better.
