    Good luck with that, I've tried up and down to do similar in Perth myself in the past and never got anywhere.
    The most common answer was "we can't do that it'd be too expensive", translates to "we cant be bothered".
    Spent $2.5K with a guy in Brisbane in the end, which I guess is not enough to get people out of bed in Perth.

    Depending upon what you want done I'd look at an on-line service such as:
    Online Machine Shop - Internet Machine Shop - Online Machining Services!

      Cnc machining is not the way to go for one off parts...

      far too expensive...

      you just need ordinary machining...

        Post up what it is you are trying to do, I might be able to watercut it or co-erce a machinist to help you
        Can cut any shapes, in very thick billets too - pics: 1, 2, 3

            It could be in your rolodex, possibly in your filofax, but most likely on a post it note somewhere you won't lose it
            Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

            when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                    I was happily machining to 0.01mm 30 years ago on old lathes and Bridgeport mills with no digital read out...

                      WHS, you need to define "accurate" means to you.
                      The other reason you might needs CNC is if its a complex shape with 3D surfaces in it for example.

                        Another recommendation is Edwards engineering on Howe street in Osborne park.

                        Small machining shop that has a "can do" for small machining jobs. Look for the ZX-14 parked outside!

                            Hey, a locul huh? Edwards are just down the road from where I work as well. He's done a bit of machining work for us.

                            If you spot a white Er-6n with a top box on the back around osb park, that would be me!

                              Too old skool, need to be digital
                              I mean really nothing of any value, tight tolerance or quality was ever machined before 1990

                              From one old F&M to another
                              It's better to be thought stupid than open your mouth and remove all doubt

                              Pure speed in sixth gear on a 5,000 foot straightaway is one thing, but pure speed in third gear on a gravel-strewn, downhill, ess turn is quite another.
