    Ken, What are you doing and just exactly what is it that you want to accomplish? Just a 1.75" dia. slug x .25" thick? Maybe something with a step like a top hat to insert in a tube and weld around it? What kind of material (mild steel)? I would be glad to give you a price to turn them up on one of my CNC lathes but I need more information.

    The stamped parts from AA Mfg will be the least expensive over machined. If you don't need close tolerence then you should definetly buy the stamped parts. If your need is for something closer fitting then please let me know and we will talk more about your needs.

    we used freeze plugs when we were doing tubing doors. There is a size that'll press fit in and then you have the curved edge to weld around. Perfect, imho. Just take a 6" piece of scrap tube to your auto parts store. They should be able to hook you up!
