    Are there machine shops that will do one-off work? Of course.

    Declaring what "most" do with the kind of certainty you just tried?

    ok alan, specifically, how is it crap? especially in the context that
    it's a drill press that you need to drill ONE hole, that doesn't need
    to be precise, for a small run?

    ok, we'll go with the default answer- you have no idea. :p
    sorry, but that doesn't fly as an excuse, because in CONTEXT, it
    didn't need to be a box where it was "missing" a section. and again,
    in CONTEXT, you said "Five sides isn't six sides," which of course
    meant you thought it needed all six sides, which definitely isn't the
    case, in context. want to make another try at an excuse, or would you
    like to just admit you didn't know this time? :p

    you didn't answer the question alan.
    i'll declare it again, as it's almost by definition what machine shops
    are. it is now ridiculously clear that you haven't ever done any work
    in a machine shop, nor have you ever had any work done by a machine
    shop.

    Your words in the OP: "And for those who care, I could have had them made
    in China for cheap."
    According to the image you provided you were declined in all but one case.

    Can you post an image of one of the cheapest quotes it would clear things up
    immensely.

    You are correct in that most machine shops do only one offs or limited runs
    of two dozen or so . The large runs would be given to specialized
    operations that only handle long runs.

    A job like this disk with threaded hole would be produced from bar stock
    (12L14 leadloy) done on a large multi spindle for max production. As the
    hole was drilled and tapped the OD and front face would be turned and a
    cutoff tool would part the back face simultaneously. The machine time on the
    part would be the time of the longest operation. In this case the cutoff.

    You are also correct that someone with a small amount of mechanical skill
    and a used $100 drill press could do it by hand. There are people in Long
    Island, NY who specialize in supplying discs of any size cheap.

    No, I declined them. I'm sorry you cannot read. If you are really that stupid
    .... for real ... sign up with mfg.com and put out an RFQ for something. But I
    know, as well as the rest of the readers here, that you are just spewing your
    usual bile because you can't ever be wrong.
    Why bother, zara? You are such scum you will say I modified the screen shot.

    You don't have to spout off and get insulting to cover your ignorance and
    lies.
    I am not zara. Your excuse for not posting a cheaper quote leaves what you
    say suspect.

    Frankly I don't know. About the only thing I remember is the machining was
    done CNC, whatever that is. The qualifications were minimal: steel so that a
    magnet would attract; plated to avoid rust. That's it.

    That is not true. Why use deception to attempt to prove right what is
    wrong.
