Plasma cutting in north TX

Planning on sending out my tabs and brackets for quote at a couple places in north TX. Anyone have a suggestion for good vendors for this service? Also I had one shop ask me if I wanted my bolt holes machined instead of plasma cut? I said no but maybe someone here could tell me why I might consider this?

Plasma is accurate enough. Machining makes them more money.

Why not get a grinder & cutting wheel and cut your own brackets? OR have them plasma your brackets and drill your own holes?

i would find someone with a water jet before i sent them to a guy with a plasma table but thats me. i know someone just north of you in ponder with 2 waterjets if your interested. he will cut out whatever you need if he has a pattern. He has cut 2 sets of wheel centers and rock rings for some H1s and they turned out nice.

I can send part files until someone is blue in the face. I'm too far off in the weeds on this design to buy anything stock.

Went with mudpro.... in North Carolina not North TX. I'll be using them again. All this for $100 seemed reasonable to me. Holes drilled not plasma cut.
