4.5x3.5in steel plate needed

I was told to come here after posting in the wanted section hoping i would get some more hits.

I need someone to fab me a steel plate thats 4.5in long by 3.5in wide. The plate needs to be around 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and have the corners rounded to 1/4 (.25).

I dont have the tools or materials to do this so i was hoping someone could make me one and ship it to me.

I WILL PAY for the plate AND SHIPPING

If you think you can make me one shoot me a message and we can work something out.

Thank you for your time

Have you talked to any of your local jeepers for a little local help?

Just curious.. what's it for?

If you haven't got any by the weekend, shoot me a PM. I can throw some 3/8" on the plasma table and zap it out for you.. $10 shipped.

I wouldn't think you'd need it that thick if you're just covering the hole. 3/16 should be sufficient, plenty strong and easier to cut.

Agreed.. and I have a sheet of 3/16" on the table at the moment. I can cut that piece free.. just pay the $5 for Flat Rate Shipping.

See there.

I told you someone here (fabrication forum) would hook you up!



You should burn the bolts holes in it too while you are at it!
