Identify potential sponsors in your area who have EDM capability, and ask nicely.
...or reach out to a team in your region who already has an EDM-capable sponsor, then see if you can barter with them. We'll machine X parts for you if you give us Y extra parts or machine Z for us in return. Bartering is fun around these here parts. Our NEOFRA teams trade materials and sponsor services all the time. Example: I submitted some lexan from 379 to our waterjet sponsor along with all our parts; in return, the RoboCats gave me their unused KOP accumulator.
