Does anyone have any preferred suppliers in the US Midwest for movement trays? The company I used to work with appears to be gone (or they changed names after changing ownership, and left no redirect information), and so far I haven't found anyone else in the general area to take their place.

I'd love to just get my own laser engraver, but I don't think I can quite justify the cost, so I'm hoping some people here have alternative suppliers.

I really like the custom metal movement trays from Shogun Miniatures. They are small, almost invisible, rather than the large edged ones that you need to texture to match your bases to look good on the table. I just prime and paint the edge to match the side of my bases and prime and paint the top to match the color of the top of my bases. And if you use magnetic bases, no added work to add mag strips or metal to the tray, since it is already metal.

Dave, go ahead and get a laser cutter. I'm sure there's all sorts of stuff you'd do that would make it well worthwhile. And you could cut stuff for others for a small fee....
