When it's working right, the NB laser cutter should be fine for cutting
those stencils; I think xek (Josh) has done some already.

However at the meeting yesterday somebody said that the laser cutter had
one belt missing some teeth, so it doesn't work very well until the
replacement belt arrives.  Someone else said the replacement belt has
already been ordered.

I think you might get better response times if you ask on fab at lists
but I didn't see anybody discussing the bad belt on there :( so maybe
it's not really used that much.
