Office dividing walls.

Add dark curtain to back side for welding curtains.

Line sidewalk with them.

Lots of ideas :)

I have a guy who wants to lay them on his gravel driveway to help keep stones in place.  Not sure that's going to work.

Crusarius - I thought they would make a nice divider too.  Great minds must think a like.  ;D

I have never seen a plasma cut sheet that clean. Very nice. Maybe I need to start using higher grade steel with my plasma?

Those hooks hanging on the blue bin are right off the cutter?  No grinding?  WOW!

So did you take a bunch of cut hooks and lay them out various ways to determine what the most you could get out of a sheet?  Just wondering if you could arrange them like a stack of nested spoons only leaning over a bit.  Maybe like:

Crusarius - those hooks have been plated.  If you have a hook from when we had someone else cut them, there is a divot where the machine starts and stops the cut.  Not any more though!! They come off our machine nice and smooth.

ljohnsaw - we use a program to figure out the best pattern for maximum yield

Amazing what happens when you use the correct lead in and lead out :)

Hmmm... it just might make a good erosion control device - as long as you can keep the water from digging under the outside edge

It could be the next camo pattern, part of a new table /  leg design.  Hmmm

Thanks

I know off-road DIY-ers are always buying gussets, tow hook mounts, etc. for their projects. Seems like you could cut dozens out of the areas between the hooks. Tons of them on e-bay:

It would make a cool fence /gate at the end of the Logrite driveway.

3/8"

I'd make a bunch of gussets, cylinder mounts, Chain key-hole slots etc. and sell them to DIY's. Just Google those or look on e-bay for the links I'm not allowed to post. If the machine is running anyway why not cuts stuff out of the scrap to sell?

If you made keyhole plates with Logrite logos on them, I'd buy some! :)

I think the material is too thick for keyhole plates but thanks for the suggestion.

If you just want my logo we have nice wall mount bottle openers.  :D :D :D :D
