I need a few small pieces of stainless steel ( 6x2x1/4, 6x2x1/2, 6x1.5x1/4, 6x1.5x1/2) ground flat and square. My guess is that's the job for a machine shop with a surface grinder? Does any one have a idea of that they would charge me, I have a few shops close by? Guy once drilled two 3/4" holes threw 1.5 inch steel for me and charged me $20 bucks. But I doubt he would do it again, took him 1/2 hour and a lot of sweat. I don't want to walk into a shop and be shocked when they want $500+ if that's what it costs? Kind of like walking into a restaurant And walking out when the menu is to expensive.
I don't need them true to 1000's of a inch just cleaned up, is there another way of going about this? I tried running my belt sander over it but it took me a hour and it still don't look that great.
