    That job will keep your laser running continuously for a whole year!

    So you need to buy at least one extra laser in order to be able to service your other customers.
    (Cheap Chinese lasers would be fine for a simple cutting job, but you would need lots of spare tubes and parts).

    Interesting problem - let us know how you solve it.

    I have no time to do for one year. They need to make pretty quick. Hope some valuable idea come out...

    Honestly, a Manual jig and a router would be the way to go... Or even a CNC... But a simple circle would be easy with a Jig and Router.. The Question is weather a 1/8 inch end mill bit would leave the correct size of the additional circles....
