Custom Parts

I've been singing the praises of ExpressPCB. This weekend Phil did his first successful toaster oven surface mount soldering, and we've been talking about automating the heating cycle, so hacking electronics is getting easier and easier.

Back when I was trying to deal with machine shops in San Francisco I wondered why there weren't online machine shops. I discovered there kind of are, but communication is still an issue. What if you could provide the part definition CAD software, and the software checked for stupid goofs? Looks exactly like what eMachineShop is doing.
