John,
Welcome to the forums.
A little more information would be a big help. What are you looking for? Where are located? How soon does it need to be done? And maybe most importantly, what kind of issues are you having with your CNC? Maybe we can help with that and you can mill it yourself much faster.

First Welcome to the Router Forums.

Can you give us more information on the parts you need cut. Also what CNC machine do you have? We might be able to tell you what you need to do to machine the parts on your CNC.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I have one of those cheap Chinese machines and just cannot get it working. I don't mind paying some one to mill it for me. I am attaching the g-code of the design I need. It is 3 lapel pins and all are the shape of a shrimpers rubber boot. I need it milled out of graphite. Time is not a problem.

HOW DO I ATTACH A FILE?

John I sent you Private Massage.


Why are you wanting them milled using Graphite? That would require hazmat equipment to be on the safe side.

John,
I agree with Mike above. Why does it need to be graphite? There are many other materials that are easier, safer, and honestly more durable for something like that.

Graphite is the only material I can think of to use to make a mold to pour .999FS in for lapel pins>
