    Hey

    I would like to have something made, as it's to complex for my skill level and after trying the local engineering/ metalwork workshops who said that they recomend going to someone who has cnc machinery.

    It's a mid plate for a Lian Li v2110b.

    Have read on these forums a lot of schools and sign writers have cnc machines may be worth doing a search through your telephone directory or just Google "cnc cutting services in York" to get started your best best would be finding a stainless/aluminium workshop with a water jet cnc machine should not be that expensive. Here you go http://www.freeindex.co.uk/categories/industry/industrial_services/water_jet_cutting/ keep sending emails with the drawing till you get a reply that's what I did am in Australia and it took me a few weeks to find someone to do my stuff for reasonable price sorry can't be more help cheers

    I think that is something you could do with a jigsaw.

    Agreed, a drill and jigsaw should do it. There's not even a single angle in there. Exact measurement required, though. :naughty:

    You would be much better off getting that laser cut or waterjet than thrown on a CNC milling machine. Yes, all of these are CNC, but CNC is typically a term used for milling and lathing.
