This may be just a drunken rambling, but could you buy some gold heat shield, stick it inside the bell and end up with a nice, lightweight insulated product?

I’d love to find a laser cutter that can cut carbon, aramid and fibreglass cloths, It would make fabrication so much “tidier”.

Is ther a machine capable of doing that?
