^^ The only problem with that is the tool PEI made isn't out of sheet metal or anything like that. If you look in the thread at the top about '330 harmonics and the ati damper' it shows the tool he had to make. It's basically two heavy-duty pieces of allthread welded together with some bearings to help the tool rotate easier. Hard to explain but if you look at the pictures it makes sense. Instead of a water jet you would need something like a lathe (as Adam suggested) to hold the pieces perfectly in line while welding them.
