Happy National Get Gnarly Day!  Jet Edge customers are doing the gnarliest things with their water jet cutting systems.

David Allen Company of Raleigh, North Carolina, has a  6'X12' Jet Edge High Rail Gantry waterjet cutting system.  On that great big machine, they water jet cut 1,200 intricate pieces of stone and stained glass for their conference room table.  See the white on the peacock's eye?  It's no bigger than the white of a thumbnail, but it was cut on that huge waterjet table.  Their secret to keeping the parts from falling in the 3' deep waterjet tank?  Coffee stir sticks.

Plasti-Fab, Inc. of Oregon didn't have room in their building for their huge Jet Edge waterjet system, so they installed it outside under an awning and fitted it with a pool cover and heater.  In this photo they are cutting 8,000 lb fiberglass parts with water jet. Read more.
