I am looking to change some aluminum frame plates in for Carbon or G10 and wondering who can give good advice on where to get the cnc work done?

Has any one had any experience doing this? I am changing a gasser to an electric and any help would be great.

Thanks

Here are a couple of water jet places that you can contact for a quote. All you would need to do is give them a frame, or a drawing, and they could cut you out an exact one in carbon, or G-10. I have had a few things water jetted myself near my home town. Its kind of expensive, so i would only recommend doing it this way, if you cant buy them from an online hobby store. Good luck

At mattox, Im not sure how the guys are doing at the water jetting companies, but most of them advertise they can do it. What ive heard is there slowing down the acceleration time on the water pump. Have you tried calling a water jet company, or the manufacturer of your water jet to ask for advice. I wish you the best of luck.

Waterjet is certainly not advised when cutting glass fiber or carbon fiber laminates. It can cause delamination and edge quality is not desirable.

Best to cut the material mechanically with a carbide tool.

It can be done but it depends on the quality of the carbon laminate.....ie: resin and material.

I might be able to help you with G10. I don’t cut carbon. Do you have CAD files?
