Custom Backing Plates

I have these behemoth chainplates that need backing. I can't for the life of me find anyone in the NYC to custom make them for me. Anyone know of a great machine shop here or anywhere. If I make a model of what I need, can they make them from that? Also, what's best, Aluminum or SS, and how thick?? (I have a 35 foot S&S)

check out Online Machine Shop - Instant Pricing

You download their really easy to use cad program, design your part, they make it and you get it. I think their pricing is reasonable and I really like that the cad program calculates the price for you. I had shop make some new beefier chain plates for my O'Day. They charged me an arm in a leg and when I went to pick them up they weren't even polished
