Default Build your own waterjet from a kit

I work for the company WARDJet. They now offer something that no other waterjet manufacturers have done: sell a high quality, American made waterjet cutting system in kit form.

The WARDKit is virtually identical to the accurate E-Series of waterjets for about 60% of the price and is manufactured entirely in America and available in 5x5, 5x10, and 2x2 sizes
  • Price includes everything necessary to start waterjet cutting.
  • features WARDJet’s signature heavy duty waterjet tank and Job Shop Grates™ ideal for precise cutting of both thin and thick materials up to 12”.
  • 3232 ballscrew and beefy construction of the WARDKit gantry combine to provide accurate and reliable cutting.
  • equipped with your choice of a water-only or abrasive cutting head with full abrasive delivery system.
  • comes standard with a HyPrecision 30 HP intensifier pump.
  • includes access to WARDJet’s renowned technical support. Upgrades and options on pump horsepower, controller style, and abrasive delivery system are also available to allow for your perfect configuration.

Operated with a PC-based laptop controller and WARDJet’s user friendly Ikuhlu software, the WARDKit is an easy-to-use and powerful tool versatile enough for any application.

Prices for the WARDKit begin as low as $65,000. Financing is available for those who qualify for as little as $67 per business day! Adding a waterjet to your shop has never been easier, more affordable, or more fun!
WARDKits are already being built around the world with great success. Contact WARDJet at, 330-677-9100 for more information about the WARDKit today, or visit

Isn't that the native tribe that went cannibal after they ran out of Spam?

Spam for breakfast... a classic:

I've seen 10' tables go for $10Gs or less at an auction, all inclusive apart from rigging and setup...

I've seen a "homemade" CNC router table go for around $1G. The mechanics were all there to convert to something else but I don't think anyone wanted to mess with it as it was quite large...

MillerMatic 252 w/3rd gen 30A

Hobart (Miller) 625 plasma
Hobart 250ci plasma
Victor O/A (always ready, but bored)
HF 80 lunchbox w/tig
45ACP Black Talons for those stubborn jobs...

I'm afraid that to have any success on this forum, you're going to need to send a free sample kit to me to test and review.
I've always had more time than money.

It has to be an odd number in case there is any disagreement. I don't have a lot of spare time, but for the benefit of the other forum members, I'm willing to make the sacrifice. I'm close enough to a couple other members that they can come try it out.
