    I too bought the R21 kit from kludge. It took 5 months for all the parts to get there. Aside from the plate work you also need some machined parts. It's no problem if you have a lathe though. If you have any questions about building one let me know.

Lower cost plasma cutting, just a little less accurate that the water jet, which is more costly, due to the slower cut speed.

    I'm sure his customer agreement deals only with the copying or redistribution of plans, not the building of specific plate work that is only useable to people that have purchased the plans. He only cares that people that build his buggies actually paid for the right to build them. He intended for the customers to have someone do the plate work and I doubt if he cares who so long as his drawings aren't being misused.

    It cost him nothing for you to sell parts and if anything increases his ability to sell.

    I would not give out the DXF files to anyone, not just because of Rorty, but because you may increase your competition to build parts for other customers that purchase the plans that need parts cut.......

    Hey "D" have you heard anything from Rorty?

    Looks like the R21 is gone from his plans page.

    I wish Rorty still hung out here.

    I tried, but for some reason, I can't get the screen up to send a e mail. It says my computer isn't set up for that?? Kinda odd. Could you try to pull up the contact info, and send me his email? Wait...it might be on my set of plans.... Eh, they are in the garage, I'll check tomorrow.
