The shop in Braintree that said they could do it said about half an hour programming/set up, and an hour to run all 4 parts. They said because it was aluminum, the actual milling time would not be too long - but they said at least $250 to do it. They also thought it wouldn't need a CNC machine, but someone with a smaller milling machine (with some type of bar?) would be able to do it and the machine-time cost would be lower. After I couldn't find someone that could/would do it for what I thought to be a reasonable charge, I put it on the back burner. Now I'm ready to tackle it again.
