Custom plates/brackets, free (plus shipping)

hey all. I'd like to offer my amateur fabrication skills, so I'm offering free bracket and plate fabrication. I'm limited by custom shapes on a single plane, as I have no adequate cutting tools besides a die grinder. I can, however, custom weld at any angle and can drill bolt holes.

If anybody is Interested, either post or pm with specs. Obviously, the more detailed your design is, the easier it will be for me to fabricate.

Important information: bolt hole size, distance from bolt hole center to bolt hole center, bracket length and width, any angles included in the bracket.

First couple of interested fellows will get free shipping. That means a totally free part!

I'm just testing the waters; I'm not sure what I'm getting myself into, but I'd love to help any way I can.

Well if you had a brake, I'd say make a bunch of these:
