    Took me a few hours to get to grips with it but once you get the hang of it you can do anything you want. You can download a trial version from the website if you want to have a play.

    OK, will sort it tonight.

    Never mind routers cutting ali, considering making a slower high torque spindle and fitting a coolant pump so that I can cut steel. I think it should be possible with small carbide endmills but we will see.......

    Quick query Steve - when you said in the OP "All aluminium frame - tooling plate which I got at the right price!" any chance you could let on where that was from?

    See John S is recommending ASC Metals in another thread. Thought might also be worth trying Metalfast's offcuts service but apart from those any ideas?

    Leengate Metals in Nottingham - http://www.leengatemetals.co.uk/

    I got all my aluminium tooling plate for the same price as standard plate as they had just bought a load from a company that went bang. Don't know if they have any left but I would have thought so.
