Sometimes, if you call around, you can get a great deal on small jobs from major shops. Or at least, that happened to me once, when I ordered a few dozen specialty ground beveled mirrors a few inches across some years ago. The price was, to me, astonishingly low; I later realized that it was because I had contracted with a huge manufacturer. I assume they charged a low price because they thought the things were samples for a big run; simply put, hobbiests didn’t order from them, so they had no experience with tiny orders.
Driving to pick the things up was a surreal experience - the place was enormous, a gigantic factory for grinding glass. The guy who gave me the order clearly saw the humour in the situation - he drove up in a massive forklift, with my order balanced carefully on one of the tines (you could easily pick it up with one hand) and, with great ceremony, carefully placed it in the back of my car!
