I have a little project that's extremely simple, but I don't have the tools.
I need some flat metal plates - steel or hard aluminum - cut to a specific size. The plates would be pretty thick 0.25", sizes of 4"x36" and 8"x8".
I also need several holes drilled into these plates of specific diameter and exact placement.
But first, I need to acquire the metal sheets and plates so I can have them cut to size and drilled.
Where can I (a)obtain the steel and/or aluminum plates/sheets 0.25" thick approx 8"x8" and 4"x36" and (b)have them cut and drilled in specific ways?
This machine shop - metal work (maybe even a DIY hobby place) can be anywhere in Los Angeles, though West side - Hollywood area is a plus. Hopefully won't cost an arm and a leg. TIA!
