Choosing a Cutter--please help

Hello--

I am very inexperienced in metal-cutting and am looking to purchase a cutter to use at home to cut brass & wood to start--possibly other materials eventually. The materials I'm cutting would be mostly approx 1-2mm thick, up to maybe 1cm. I would be cutting various shapes, including outlines of countries, from about 3/4" tall and up.

For example:


Please advise. If I need to provide any other information please let me know.

Thanks very much
Gabe

Do you want hand tools or power tools? Will you consider two tools since metal and wood are best cut with different tools?

A CNC plasma cutter like Condo-Owner mentioned will only cut metal and it is a very expensive machine for someone inexperienced. Also, you cannot use it to cut wood.
