    I would find someone local that has a fiber laser. While I wouldn't try cutting out shapes with it, Your numbers will come out WAY better. And a 175mm lens and a 50watt would be good fit.

    The inline fan will most probably work. I've a 6 inch and it works pretty good over about 8 foot length. I'd not drop to a 4 inch for that type of fan unless you are getting a really high volume. ...
