Odd request... I would think there are a lot of custom shops that make headers all over the country.

Not looking for a custom shop, trying to find small production shops. Stan’s in Washington as an example.
Ever owned a business in Calif? The cost of doing business there is substantially higher than damn near any where else in the country, are those costs passed along to the consumer? You betcha.

So sounds like you don’t want Cali because prices are high but the same is true for smaller production shops. Higher volume tends to lower the price

True that...except I think the smaller shops to a better job so you don’t mind the price as much. Just my opinion.
