Engineering Tech A Q & A Forum devoted to Engineering Issues that don't necessarily fall into Aircooled or Watercooled Tech. Got a problem? Or an engineering question? Even a buildings or property engineering question? Then ask in here. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Default Help with laser cutting.

I need a bit of help with some laser cutting.
Have found a guy that can do a little job for me for £20, but he needs a “file” made - I just don’t know anything about that shizzle.

Can anyone here make me a suitable file please, and if so how much would you charge.

Alternatively, could anyone here make a file and make the bit I need?

I need a piece of 2 or 3mm mild steel sheet, about 120mm x 60mm with ‘25L’ cut into it.
The numerals need to be 20mm high, 12mm wide and about 4mm thick. Spaced out with 7mm between them.

It is to make a simple press tool to emboss a piece of .8mm think MS sheet.

Send over your email address Slug, I'll pop it over for you :-)

edit- got bored at a meeting so bashed it out. tried 4mm thickness, seemed a bit "bold" compared to your pics so have made a 3mm one and a 4mm one for you, pics attached.

Link to download DXF files, should be readable by your guy::
