    Making these, I am building a catalogue of as many flanges as I can get, have them in mild and 304 SS

    these are SBC 304 flanges

    What advantages do these have over laser/watercut flanges? which I can actually afford.

    About the same as every out CNC car part out there, nothing, but when you have a 2500 set of turbo manifolds on your 1400hp small block 300 bucks for some flanges becomes a non issue.

    Be a bunch more impressive if they were stubbed and properly transitioned to the tube/pipe.

    Also, when youre doing nothing, compare an LS to a HV8 and figure out an adapter flange to put cheap LS headers on a holden.

    Yea I am doing that to these LS flanges I am drawing up now. I have a section where the pipe fits in and then can be welded out, then I will do another one for turbo steam pipe sections. The SBC ones they want to squash the tube and fit inside the port, it was for a customer already but seems to be fair amount of interest in them already.

    do you have holden port spacing, I will tell you straight away if this is possible.

    A couple of the bolt holes will be funky but the port spacing is sweet, less than 2mm from one end to the other using my good eye, centre it to split the difference and its a lick with a stone from port matched goodness.

    I'll see if i can dig up the proper holden dimensions but windsor, LS and HV8 are close enough to make it work, its just valve angle/rocker cover/plug clearance that might be a problem.

    edit: for turbo headers and ive only looked at up and forward.

    I reckon you could package those flanges up with some sexy gaskets.

    Steel trap from Selco seal. We've been putting them into all sorts of unique applications.

    It is really much more than a three step process but here is the main parts of what goes on to make a CNC part. The stages from design/engineering to CNC Machining and finished product...Design, Prototype, CNC Machine....

    Very nice transition. Do you mind if i show these over on Reddit? A few people have asked in the past about the process of going from model>FDM prototype>machined part.

    Got a question for you TC / Brypar / anyone who can help.

    Down the track for work we're looking at getting a plasma / laser cutter for cutting out sheet aluminium (for folded radiator tanks, thickness is around 2-3mm). Can you make any recommendations on what the best machine to go for would be? (so far the advice we've been given is to look for a hi def. plasma cutter).
