Nick, I can cnc plasma cut but it doesn't sound exactly like what you are looking for.

Im a cnc programmer. What are you looking to do? I have access to 3 axis mills, live tooling lathes, and 6 axis integrex. We use solid works, feature cam, and mastercam.

I am wanting to machine a new front cover ring for my stock Clarion speaker cans on my tower. The old ones are only compatible with the Clarion bolt pattern and are for component sets not coaxials. I'm considering doing a custom ring that gets rid of the tweeter pod and has the Wetsounds bolt pattern.

I can manually machine stuff - if it fits on a rotary table.

and I willing to pay $10 to have it done!

OK before everyone starts flaming me for that comment the reality here is that many non manufacturing people don't realize what CAD and CNC time costs. We have people watch American Chopper then walk into the shop and think that we can CAD and build them stuff for what they would buy something off Ebay for pennies. Or that we stand around and wait for cool stuff to come in and work on it.

So apparently we have tons of talented people on this site that can and will make whatever you want/need. The next question will be are you willing to pay for the talent and efforts?

Again sorry for the curt response but do you realize the cost to CAD and engineer the type of product you're looking for? If so I'm sure there will be some very qualified people on this site that can help you out.

Nick if you need any help I can do the 3d for you. Have inventer and pretty much every other program avail. sketch up something and give me dimensions. After that you can get someone on here or a local shop to do the machining.

You are taking away from my secret project time lol
