    Default Recommendation for large(ish) EDM Work

    Any recommendations for a good WEDM shop that can fit a slightly oversized part?

    We have a 17inch cube of 6061 that needs an extrusion shape cut all the way through it (+/-.003). The slug left in the middle will be about 90% of the weight. If we can find a way to squeeze this onto an EDM, I think it will save a lot of hassle. However, I only know enough about EDM's to be dangerous, and none of my usual suppliers can fit the part!

    Would prefer to find somebody in the Pacific Northwest if possible.

    I'd be curious to see if our shop could accommodate, I'm an EDM operator for a small shop, and while we don't *usually* cut parts that large, we've done at least one part of similar dimension. Should I, as they say, get my people in touch with your people?

    My GO TO recommendation for oversized EDM parts (sinker and wire) is Reliable EDM in Texas.
    They can do HUGE parts...yours is a piddler by comparison.
    A quick Google search will find them.

    Cheers
