    Looking for small shops to build my tornado shelter -- where may I post request?

    It's made out of 1/4" mild steel plate, 7' wide section rolled to 3' radius, ends welded on and doors fabricated.

    I built the prototype that was tested by myself with a small MIG and Plasma cutter (rolling and breaking done by steel supplier)

    Then I took it to Texas where it was hit by 4 two by fours fired out of air cannon and -- much to the surprise of the head testing engineer -- it passed with flying colors.

    So I'm looking for some small shops to build them for local markets.

    Is there a forum where I could post this offer?
