Big Blue Saw's biggest sale ever is coming next week thanks to 3 of our most supportive communities of customers. From Monday, September 19 through Wednesday, September 21, Big Blue Saw will offer discounts on the following THREE materials:

  • 0.1875 inch (4.8 mm) thick aluminum 6061
  • 0.06 inch (1.5 mm) thick stainless steel 304
  • 0.125 inch (3.2 mm) thick aluminum 5052

Each of these materials represent something special to 3 online communities who have helped Big Blue Saw grow over the years.
 

0.1875" Aluminum 6061



This is the material of choice for the waterjet cut parts of the FarmBot Genesis. Interest in this robotic gardening machine is growing, and Big Blue Saw can help you build yours by cutting the brackets from aluminum.

Of course, this material is useful for a variety of other things as well: electric cycles, lightweight tools, aircraft parts and bottle openers to name a few.
 

0.06" Stainless Steel 304


This decorative and tough material makes an excellent keyboard plate for enthusiasts assembling their own custom mechanical switch keyboards. This group needs their keyboards made THEIR way and Big Blue Saw's online quoting and ordering system lets them easily order one off parts.

Stainless steel is renowned for its luxurious appearance and corrosion resistance, making it a great material for decorative pieces like jewelry, charms, and outdoor signs. And recently I read in the RioBotz Combat Robot Tutorial that stainless steel 304 has outstanding mechanical toughness as well.


0.125" Thick Aluminum 5052



The Astromech community is dedicated rebuilding and re-imagining the droids of the Star Wars universe. We first started to see some sales from this group back in 2013, but it wasn't until 2014 when CAD designs for various droid parts became publicly available that sales really took off. Word spread that if you wanted foot shells waterjet cut, Big Blue Saw was the place to go. We waterjet or laser cut a number of different designs over the years for individual hobbyists who want to bring their robotic creations to life.

The uses for aluminum 5052 extend way beyond robots, though. Its high strength, weldability and formability make it a great choice for lighting fixtures, control panels, and costumes, plus many of the other things on our list of waterjet cutting applications.

6061 alloy is made by combining pure aluminum with silicon, copper, magnesium, and chromium in just the right amounts. This alloy has a highly convenient combination of strength, toughness, corrosion resistance, and weldability.  You will find aluminum 6061 used both for decorative purposes, like signs, as well as structural ones like on the BattleBot Bite Force, or the Space Shuttle.

sagan-pioneer

The Pioneer Plaque was made of aluminum 6061. This plaque was designed by astronomers Carl Sagan and Frank Drake for use on the Pioneer space probes. It represents humankind's message to any extraterrestrial civilizations that the probe might encounter and thus is designed to last for thousands of years.
