bigbluesaw.com is pretty nice and easy to work with, but a little on the pricey side for my taste

They don't quote, but they're fast and will still be one of the lower prices you can get. Main reasons I go with whyachi are good quality for the money, fast turnaround, and huge material range. I've got them cutting 7075 aluminum, AZ31-b magnesium and grade 5 titanium for me right now.
