    As per title, thought it wouldn't be difficult to find someone who would be able to get something like this made, but appears I was wrong. Have a DXF/STL file as well as Sketchup model; anyone here able to help at all? Thanks!

    Go on eBay and search for laser cut service mate, plenty of people on there can sort it. Recently got some stuff CNCd and it was great.

    Yeah I did this, messaged every aluminium CNC service listing that came up but the results haven't been great. Either no reply, can't do 0.5mm thickness or some other complication with the design means they can't do it properly!

    I think I may have a spare one of those? Is it from a specific hub or just an eBay one?
