Default Services for chassis fabrication?

Hi all, hopefully this is the right place to post this query.

Iím looking to design a chassis for a project Iím making but lack the materials and tools to cut and bend metal.

Is there any services out there where I could create a design or blueprint with measurements and send this off to a specialist to make?


Thanks
Ed

Hi Ed, have a look through Model Engineer or Model Engineers Workshop, I'm sure someone offers a service if you provide a CAD drawing, similar to the PCB services that are offered

Ed's suggestion is a good one. Lots of people with workshops there. There are professional outfits that can do front panels too, but perhaps they're too big for what you're looking for.

Alternatively, if you PM me the details, I could pass your design onto my brother - he even has a flypress, and is a jeweller by day so used to working with metal. If he's got time he could tell you what it might cost for him to do it, or if there are problem areas.

In times-past I had a chassis made by a local shopfitting/catering-equipment company at a competitive price.

They have guillotines/punches/folding-machines that do a nice job on stainless-steel sheet, and can also weld fillets etc. into the corners to take Rivnuts for bolting-the-thing-down.

The only lads I know who do such a thing are -

https://www.schaeffer-ag.de/en/products#product

who do a very professional job.

If you have a drill you could go this route -

I used a used one of these for my last amp build. Lastly if you can wait a while I can probably fettle a chassis for you, but my leg has to heal, might be a few weeks.

Andy.
