Cool! My aluminum just showed up on 1/30/09. (I'm catching up to real-time in my blog... almost). The plate on the left was water-jet cut to my CAD dimensions by the metals place (IRC Aluminum and Stainless in St. Johns), the other hunk of aluminum will be put on a machining center which will mill it down to the dimensions of my CAD design.
