    I might be blind Jazz but they don't seem to sell the heavy duty version, prices are very good. I recovered the aluminium extrusion from a magazine printer and KJN charged me 75p a cut and 1 a hole so at least for me was lucky to have KJN on my door step. I had 3.6m lengths to deal with lol it was all the heavy duty profile.

    I watched them cut mine so maybe them spent more time on it lol because it was spot on, I'm sure they have a DRO on the saw but was couple of years ago and they have multiple saws so maybe not all have the DRO.

    The drilling is a cnc drilled so shouldn't be any issue there.

    If that other firm sell heavy duty version I certainly use them next time if I don't buy another magazine printer to scrap.

    If you didn't buy it from China the company you bought it from did ;)

    That source is a bust.
    They will only sell 6m lengths. They will cut it but you still have to buy the whole length!
    $2530 ex gst plus shipping.......Splitters!


    back to plan; 'next'

    That is insane.

    Whats to stop you getting a mate in the UK to buy and ship out to you?

    1m of 90x45 is 25 + VAT = 30

    Shipping of 5kg 1m x 10cm x 5cm box to generic "aussie location" major port = 38

    That price applies up until 185cm - anything more they don't like, but thats a decent gantry span. Posting directly to Australind or Packenham is 39, 1-3 day service apparently.

    Lets double the cost to account for me being an idiot and not accounting for import duties... Say 135 per metre door to door.

    Thats way better than your quote of 1400 for 6m ~ 233/m not including shipping.

    I'd say his aussie flag in his profile lol

    My aluminium in the machine weighs 60kg's+ but I found a few extrusion suppliers in Oz and also could ship from China cheaper than UK.

    I can't remember exactly what size I asked then to quote for but one Perth supplier wanted well over $600AUD for two 1m lengths of aly profile inc delivery. That was why I spent $180 on a stick welder and built my gantry out of steel I scavenged off the tip.

    I'm with Kit on that one - I'm sure that alu profile is quicker and easier to use but if you can't find it at a sensible price then steel is good. I'm a (very) novice welder but my steel gantry works fine. If circumstances force you down that route, that fine - you can still build a decent machine. Just remember the home-builder's mantra - if you can't build accurate, build adjustable!

    You were Lucky! (apologies to Monty Python....)
    I can't even find anyone to sell me less than 6 metres!....lol

    Can you remember who that was?

    Yes, steel maybe a cheaper option.....

    Will probably explore buying from UK, or failing that *shudder* china......

    Early days.....Have to get the shed up first!
