A quick Google search came up with a bunch of laser cutting places that I am sure could do it from a proper file - and it highlighted the TO ones since that is where I am "located" - thanks fro asking so now I know where to go!

Let me know what you find out.

Excellent thanks. I had a friend tell me to go to the library and see if they have an idealab and if they do ask if they have laser cutters. Apparently they teach you how to use it and for a small fee you can do it yourself. I'm hoping to get in there in the next week or so to check it out.

There used to be a hackerspace in Barrie and IIRC folks were working on founding another downtown. They'll pretty much always have laser engravers suitable for cutting the 1/8" acrylic you'd use for templates and I'm dead certain you could find a nerd willing to cut your pieces for way less than a job shop would charge.
