Source for custom laser-cut routing templates and covers
« on: December 22, 2015, 02:29:43 PM »
Not really hardware, but in support of installing same.  I would have thought that offering matched sets of templates and cover plates based on PDF or AutoCADD files was a no-brainer.  Maybe it's just my Karma, but Google turned up exactly nothing.  I can find a variety of stock cover plates and templates, but nothing custom.

Recommendations appreciated!

Thanks - good tips.  In the interim I found these folks: 

www.pololu.com

They can work from my files and are able to precision cut a variety of plastics and thin metal stock.  Prices look fairly reasonable to boot!
