Project highlight: 55′ Cheoy Lee Maraya’s new custom metal window frames
55′ Cheoy Lee sailboat Maraya is getting some new custom metal window frames by Dolfab Metal Fabricators
Creating custom metal window frames for a 55′ sailboat is a great testament to the ingenuity of the Dolfab team, and it gives us a chance to show you some of our equipment in action. These custom- made window frames require the use of our Waterjet cutter and a special router table that was created and assembled by our team specifically for this purpose.
The table allows for the router to be held in place while the window frames are turned around it, instead of the other way around (normally, the metal fabricator would turn the router around the piece being worked on). The pieces of metal being turned were too thin for the traditional application, so we came up with this solution:
This isn’t the first time we get creative with projects, and we know that it won’t be the last. Every metal fabrication project, yacht refit, and repair or custom project is unique, and we see new situations all the time. We draw from our collective experience in metal fabrication, which is quite extensive, to come up with innovative solutions to each new challenge.
We’re scheduled to complete this project over the next couple of weeks and will be posting updates to our Facebook page.
