Hi Everyone. I really didn't know where to put this one....Sort of commercial, but not at the same time. I'm looking for info. My go to chassis company no longer wants lots of under 100. A bit much for what I do. Does anyone know of a quality metal fabrication company that can take digital files (Eagle or Gerber) and turn them into end products...one that will do lots of 10 and 25. Even better if it is in the US.

I wold ask the moderator to put this request in the right place...but that is me. Shocked


Good Listening
Bruce

Dude, I feel for you. I have used several machine shops over the years for chassis like that. Then I began to use Pactec cabinets which cold be modified to suit. I've shipped literally hundreds of thousands of products in Pactec enclosures, mostly communications gear. But my stuff could be put into plastic boxes whereas yours can't.

I still have a lot of metal work done, but it's stuff like 6160 aluminum panels and plates (cooling systems for the 12Pi hornsubs) and one-offs for various hobbies (like specialized hotrod car parts). I just have various shops bid the work if I need a production run done. For one-offs, I have a handful of local (Tulsa) shops that I've used over the years and I'm building a network in Northwest Arkansas. Two shops here can do light work.

One in particular might be useful for you, but then again, maybe not. Their distance to you might make them unattractive. They won't balk at the quantities you need though. They're a job shop. I've had them build me some brackets and machine some dowel rods out of stainless with specific holes drilled through them. So give 'em a shout and see. Tell 'em I sent you.
