Machine Shop in the DC, Philly, or Hershey Regions for a simple job??

Recommended Posts

Hello,

  Can anyone recommend a good machine shop that will take on small jobs in the DC, Baltimore, Hershey, or Philadelphia regions?  I have to have two brackets made that need 4 tapped holes, and two bends to make a light "Z" shape, all about 7" long.  I have specs and a photo of an original bracket with dimensions.  The one machine shop I visited locally said "I don't know if we can do that, we can't bend the brackets.  I mean, what's the angle on those brackets?  I said "well, you could use a protractor to get the angle from the photo."  He got offended and said "I don't think we're interested in the job."  Seems like an easy job to me,.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

Yes.  I have the correct metal for it, just needs holes, tapped, cut into two pieces, and bending to the correct size.  1/2" x 1/4" steel stock.

Many thanks to Bob Beck, who was able to generously reproduce said brackets for my Camaro.  Got them painted up and ready to install; perfect copies of the originals.
