    I just got my parts laser cut by a company in Edmonton called KJ Laser. They were very helpful and the price was not bad – a bit over $400. The cost went up above $500 when the shipping and some other things were added in. This was the best price that I found anywhere locally so if any other Canuks are looking for this in the western part of the country you could give them a call. Here is the contact info:

    KJ Laser Ltd.

    41 Groveland Rd.

    Sherwood Park AB

    T8A 3G7

    Of course, I still screwed it up. I somehow sent them the modified files intended to be cut on a router. I now have a very nice set of those parts cut on a laser cutter. As far as I know they will still build me a functional DIYLILCNC so I will be proceeding anyway.

    @kevin,

    We didn’t supervise the CNC conversion ourselves, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t work (unless the file got borked during the transition). Thanks for posting your research!

    I did a quick experiment to check that the parts would be usable. I assembled the case for the electronics and it went together just fine. Everything fit perfectly so I guess there should not be any issues with the rest of the parts.

    I will be slowly collecting the rest of the parts over the summer, while I complete some previous projects. I expect to get into the major assembly in the fall when I have more time.
