Wazer Waterjet.png

The wazer was the result of a combination of membership subscription fees grant from the Essex Community Foundation and a fundraising from the former chair of Rochford District Council, Cllr Julie Gooding.

The Wazer is used to cut things that cannot be cut in the much larger laser cutter.
