Laser Cutting Forbon - Holy Bananas!

Andrew C.Laser Cutting Forbon - Holy Bananas!
I just went to try a laser cutting service to see how it would work on Forbon.  
 
My goodness, the results are absolutely perfect. The holes are as close to 5mm as any caliper I have to measure them, and all the side and super smooth, no need for clean-up.  
 
The only downside is that I can't use the laser to cut the bevelled hole for the solder rivet as I could with CNC before.  
 
I had previously tried to cut some wooden inlays with laser and the results were terrible, but laser and forbon seen like a match made in heaven.
