"It's a revolutionary piece of equipment," said David Donaldson, president of Columbus Industries Inc., which is located just west of Farmington.
Donaldson first spotted the equipment a couple of years ago at a machine show in Chicago and was amazed at its abilities.He has had the tool about a month, using it to make parts for area businesses such as Caterpillar Inc.With the new technology, Columbus Industries can make a product in 30 minutes that would have taken other machines two days to make.
"Anybody who has something to cut that can't be cut any other way would use this technology," Donaldson said."It's very good for companies that have prototypes to build."
An abrasive jet uses water that is pressurized more than 40,000 pounds per square inch and then forced through a small sapphire hole -- smaller than the lead of a pencil -- at more than 2,500 feet per second, or more than 2 1/2 times the speed of sound, Mach 2.5.
"If you turn out all the lights, you could almost see the stream; it's going so fast it's beginning to develop light," Donaldson said.
Garnet abrasive is pulled into the stream of water.The water-garnet abrasive mixed stream, moving at 1,000 feet per second, is then pointed at the material to be cut.The cutting action is a grinding process where the forces and motions are provided by the water rather than a solid grinding wheel, Donaldson said.
The result: The jet can cut through nearly anything, including steel eight inches thick or brittle clay tile.And the machine can make just about anything in any size, including tiny machine parts with elaborate swirls and curves.
Donaldson cited a 1 1/2-inch miniature bicycle the company carved from steel as an example of the tool's capabilities.
"I've been around a lot of different equipment in my life and this is the only one that's clean," Donaldson said.
Donaldson is banking on the new technology to set him apart from other area machine shops."We needed something to make us different.This equipment could cut just about anything, the sky's the limit," he said.

David Donaldson, president of Columbus Industries Inc., says he is so impressed with the Coot's abilities, he plans to start building it at his Fairview-based company.Production is scheduled to begin in about six weeks.
"People are amazed by the Coot," Donaldson said."Some people have seen it and told me, 'Hey if you build it, we'll buy it.' "
What's amazing about the Coot, Donaldson says, is its versatility.
Other attachments could turn the Coot into a snowplow or a lawnmower, Donaldson said.
It can carry about 1,000 pounds on land and 600 pounds' total payload in water.It also can tow a 500-pound load while hauling a 1,000- pound load up to a 30 degree sustained grade, according to Coot World.
Donaldson said he first became aware of the Coot from his superintendent, Greg Bletzoe, who bought one on E-bay.
"He said we ought to be building something like this, and I said, yeah, this is something we should be doing," Donaldson said.
Donaldson says he hasn't decided yet what he should charge for the newly revised ATV.
Currently, Coots can be found in classified ads on the Internet or for sale in newspapers.But Donaldson hopes the Coot will take off again once his company starts production.
Whether or not the Coot name is resurrected, Donaldson says he's confident ATV enthusiasts and new followers will be amazed with the vehicle's abilities.
"It can do just about anything," Donaldson said.
