Anyone know of an economical place to get plate steel (1/8"-1/4" thick) cut from CAD files locally? I'm starting to look for info for my custom bumper build. Plasma or laser works and I think either would work fine for what I'm doing.

There are a couple places closer to Charlotte that could do it. M&M fab is outside of Winston but i'm not sure what there price would be. You can look under here http://www.nc4x4.com/vendors/. There are a couple of shops that aren't too far from you that you could call for pricing.

Sounds good to me, so long as he's accurate. I work with CAD all day long, so I can do the layout and get him a file to work from. PlasmaCam accepts AutoCAD files directly, so it should be real easy for your friend.

No idea, but if he can, he'll probably post up here!
