    I'm wanting to make a thin metal box to attach to the side of my mg-34. Anybody know what type of business I could go to to get this done? I feel silly because I have no idea who does sheetmetal work. I remember using some kind of bender in shop when I was in highschool. :lol

    Sheet metal fabricator is what you want.

    Though if you can get hold of some thin ally sheet you could easy DIY.

    Depending on the size and style of the item, check some of the electronic parts catalogs for premade boxs Mouser has several pages listed and something might work that is premade and save you some bucks.

    Wow. They have a lot of boxes. Couldn't find my size, but I have it bookmarked for future reference. Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    The screen used ones had a metal box attached to the side of the feeder tray.
