Does anyone have any personal experience with laser-cutting or metal-casting companies in or around San Francisco?

I have some items I need produced, but google is turning up a bunch of companies with frustratingly generic web pages and I can't find much to go on. This is probably a long shot, but... any recommendations?

TechShop might have what you need at least for laser cutting. It's DIY though and their Epilog Helix laser cutters don't do metal. They do have a computer controlled plasma cutter for metal.

They're also pretty knowledgeable and can probably tell you if someone else can help you.

Jamie Zawinsky recently used Laser Alliance for his laser-produced signage.

I know two people that worked at Wyman-Gordon. One person was a product engineer but doesn't work there anymore. If you want to talk to him, let me know. It's a good company, but may be more than you need. He might know of some other options for you.

these folks in santa rosa do laser die-cutting:

i don't know what else they cut besides paper, but i assume such other cuttings are done.
