I talked to a manufacturer in town about laser cutting dogs and showed them some CF material.  They said it can be cut but it takes a powerful laser to do it.   They cut up to 1/2" SS and titanium but said their lasers would not cut it unless pushing them harder than they wanted.

I doubt laser would cut it very well. Waterjet is the way to go to cut CF drag washers. Punch is another means.

I had some cut with a water jet, the edges were frayed and I had to flush out a lot of grit (ruby?) From the material.

This is what Sal and I use.

It's expensive at $430.00

Also have one, they are a repackaged Boehm set, may find it cheaper under the original manufacturers name.  You can also buy singles to fill in the gaps.
