Hammers? You have all the latest innovations in manufacturing technology!

I have a CND drill/router and a laser cutter (both at work) I could make small items in wood or plastics.

I have tried and failed at cutting aluminium on the CNC router. It is one designed for printed circuit board manufacture rather than metalwork and as such, its spindles rotate too fast for aluminium. I am going to try it with brass though as I think it may work.
