    Wonder if any of you fine folk could help me here:

    Im looking for a company to do a bit of laser cutting for me. Im making an arduino world clock and want to get the letters cut out from a thin wooden sheet, and possibly the led holder backing board and frame made.

    It would be a really small order and the completed pieces would be ok to go in the post, so I guess Im looking for a company somewhere in the uk that is happy to accept a low volume order and possibly hold the hand of a complete noob.

    My googling seems to be a bit crap today, has anyone used a company for this sort of work that they would be happy to recommend?

    Thanks!

    I use c3engineering for my laser cut parts as they will take small orders and one-offs, they are local to me but I know they will post work also.

    I've used The Laser Hive a couple of times for my project (Ada, in sig), and I found them helpful and reasonably priced, and keen to deliver a good product.
