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

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.

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

I was expecting the bottle opener to look like a cant hook. Nice Logrite logo on them, though.

Just FYI, smith and wesson in spfld does outside forging and die sinking, heat treat, plating, black oxide and maybe powder coating. Possibly also wire edm and cnc work for outsiders.  I was there a decade and my father and brother still are so if you have any interest in contacts there just hollar and i can get names and numbers.  

From other shops in springfield i also know independant die shop, 2 cnc shops, a cutter grinder and one water jet/knife sharpening shop.  Got another buddy at hypertherm if its of any help.  

Those scraps between your nested parts are absolutely perfect for the thing weve been talking about.  Or cut out stars and half moons etc to make windchimes and such.  Put up random artsy shapes on etsy and they will sell to the craft crowd. 

The leftover sheets should get painted and sold for industrial art, think andy warhol soup prints.  Charles Brush at indian orchard mills is the first guy who comes to mind for finding someone.  His 500,000SF mill is half machinists, half artists/photographers and a few art deco/industrial/furniture resto folks. He is the northeast epicenter of manufacturing meets art.  34-40 front street in springfield (indian orchard) mass.  Its where my shop was.
