Can anyone cut an aluminum plate for my T2W?

Hey folks,

Looking for someone with a CNC and/or aluminum cutter; I'm assuming this would be done with a laser simply because I want to but that's probably not true. Anyhow, what I'm looking for is a modified version of the T2W's connecting plate that attaches the stock to the bottomline section. I was hoping to have one made at a smaller scale to move the stock downward and in a bit along the same path. I'm ultimately trying to get the buttstock to come down about 1.5-2".

So this:


Would become this:


(green is the new position)

Ideally the person cutting the plate could drill and recess the mounting holes too but I can handle that if necessary. Anno would be amazing, of course. And yeah, I could do this manually but I'm willing to bet it'll come out much nicer if I don't, ha. Anyone want to give it a shot? Doesn't need the fancy T2W plate's curve but it does need to fit well. I can send just the plate or {gulp} the whole T2W if necessary.

Thanks,
Matt

Yep, I just bought the thing and didn't design it. I might actually just get an aluminum plate and reposition the stock until it's comfy, then see if someone can cut it to make it all fancy-like.

I was able to do this very thing with a handheld drill, hacksaw, and file. I never reannodized the part, but it turned out well; and I am extremely ham-fisted. I have faith in you matteekay!!

OH You want the little bar? I thought you wanted the whole colored part...

Yeah any way I do work for a laser cutting company but, it wouldn't be cost effective to make one

I could make a new plate for you. But is it really worth making a new one one you can simply cut the old one and drill new holes. Unless you want the spare plate. Sure I could come up with and adjustable plate for it as well.
