Scamp CNC ALUMINIUM

Post by peter n »

AM in AUSTRALIA, looking for CNC information on cutting from aluminium. Is it same as using ply?
Does anyone have any info about using Ali, & if there any boats been built/finished. Also if yes, how do they perform, compared with the ply version. Any stat comparisons, costs, material, etc builder's contact details.

Nope. Builder went quite. You can try sending the builder a message using the forum's 'send message' feature. Here is a link to his profile and you can click the message link there -
