Default Anbody making cool air vents from CNC?

I'm looking for some different air vents to replace the louvered style. Dana and Eddie marine have some but I'm looking for something new. If anydody is cutting some cool one's post some pics or let me know.

I plan on taking a some stainless steel or aluminum (if I powder coat them) over to my buddies water jet and have him cut me out some. I need to give him a drawing and he can make anything I want. I am going to have SCARAB cutout for the venting. I'll post pics when I'm. shoud be simple for him time and materials. He can cut anything up to 4" steel, its pretty sweet to watch.

I have the old stainless louvered vents, once I get the initial dimensions he can put anything in for words or script. If your interested let me know, I'll first see how mine work out.

I make these out of 3/16" thick 316 S/S for Velocity..... they are fully polished on one side, laser cut and then CNC'd....

Rookie, yes I'm interested. Let me know how you make out.


CAVelocity that looks good. I like the polished stainless. I'm looking for 4 vents about 3" x 17" are you interested in cutting some?

what about some step plates..I have some from Eddie marine..blue in color with some rubber peices..looks ok, but the powder coating is allready fading and looks like shortly could possibly be coming off and am not pleased with them 100 %. Im also looking for something longer and different..Thanks Jeff
