Machine shops?

I need to have a "wire snorkel" made and am looking for any machine shop in Maryland or within a few hours drive that can take a small job quickly. I tried the usual suspects in Annapolis, but they are too busy and generally speaking seem to be not particularly interested in small work. Any help would be appreciated!

Brak...give me a call and I may have someone who can help you out. He is in Annapolis and can do almost anything. I'll send you a PM with my phone number. I'll be back in Annapolis on Thursday...but will give you his phone number when you call.

Oh Lord. Have I ever. I used them to install new rigging on my boat with disastrous results (of which I've written on this forum extensively). I will never go back to that company (and the fact that their rigging is now on my boat is very unfortunate as I will never be able to entirely trust it). They have shoddy workmanship practices, and absolutely don't care about their work or its consequences (and all that for a LOT of money).

Sorry, going of on a rant, but that company and any mention of it sends my pressure way up.
