Cost me $AU3500 including air freight when we were about $0.82 to the USD.


Thats way less than I expected, I was thinking closer to 10K

I'm a member of the Sydney hackerspace and a whole bunch of us have just bought a laser cutter between us. Likewise there is no way I could have afforded one on my own.

Very good Idea, Will look into that.

If I get stuck with some complex designs I may well just do that, thanks muchly for the offer.
