Laser cutting?

Hello Everybody
Is there anyone who can laser cut aluminum? I have a pattern which I
need a piece of aluminum cut. It is about 8"x18" and about 0.060 to
0.080 thick. thanks .. joe w

--Laser cutting is very expensive; likewise AWJ cutting. How precise do you dimensions have to be? Maybe you could make do with plasma cutting? Very fast, very cheap.

or "Wire EDM" It's accurate and the expense is in the programming.

Maybe you need to shop around for a price? The world is full of laser cutters and the competition is cut throat.
Best to find someone who can cut directly from your AutoCAD pic.
Cheaper if they can burn a start where your line starts and then follow it down the middle. I usually put internals on a separate layer.
best regards

Laser Cutting's not that expensive. One company recently quoted me $200/hour and the machine feedrate is about 1" per second on 0.060" aluminum. Do a google on "laser cutting"

Whatever happened to good old twist drills, bastard files and needle files?

Tom..
Im a metalworking idiot...
Is a twist drill a bit that I can use in my hand drill? Like a rotary cutting tool? What do I look for when selecting a twist drill?
Thanks
