Just for everyone's information. I got a quote on my chainplates from a local rigging
shop here in Rhode Island
. They wanted $2,800.00 to fabricate the 14 chainplates and another $900.00 to polish them - $3,700 for chain plates - I don't think so!! I found a small specialty machine shop who will do the same fabrication for me for a total of $1,350.00 cash and I am going to do the polishing myself and save the money!
It sure pays to look around - saved myself a shitload of cash on this one.
