I am interested in finding someone to do some custom waterjet cutting on some fused slabs that I want cut into shapes that are too difficult to do by hand or too slow to do by bandsaw. Any one have any references?September 6, 2008 at 8:32 pm #10721mterryParticipant

Here’s some other info I have found:There is a company here in Hillsboro Oregon called "Water jet design" that has experience cutting glass the guy’s name is John Groth. He is very good.
I have not tried any of these, so let me know how they are if you do try one.

A sandblaster makes a great poor-man’s waterjet. The raven in the piece below was cut by using a buttercut resist to mask the bird and then moving slowly around the edge with the blasting nozzle about 1/2 inch from the glass.
It took about 20 minutes using silicon carbide and a pressure pot setup.
