Cut to the bone

Today we fired up the new MultiCam plasma cutter for the first time. We gingerly loaded the heavy plate onto the router with the forklift. to The first project was Phoebe's velociraptor mailbox. The file covered about two thirds of a 4' x 8' she of 3/8 thick steel. 

The robotic machine worked steadily for about an hour. The cut quality was fabulous. As the machine finished we pulled the cut pieces off the table. Even the freshest cuts were able to be handled with bare hands, warm but not hot to the touch. We had quite the pile of pieces, like a jigsaw right out of the box. Soon I'll begin the assembly of the fun piece.
