Several emails to CNC businesses here in Brisbane have yielded zero response. Has anybody dealt with someone in SEQ? I'm after both 15 and 25 foot dishes for classica...

Thickness gauge

After much umming and ahhing about the cost of a proper gauge and then again in at the potential inaccuracies of a cheaper Chinese offering, I decided to make my own.

Re: Listing of Preferred Vendors

Dear Bob, Do you or have you ever had Artesan (artesan.com.au) or Fine Tools Australia (finetools.com.au) on your preferred supplier list? I believe they are the same company.

Does anyone know of a business, in Brisbane, who could drum sand backs and tops to bring down to general thickness requirements? I'm thinking a joinery or cabinet maker's business or Men's shed etc...
