Default getting boiler parts formed

Who is still flanging parts for boilers? I have heard of a few places that will still flange a tube sheet or a back head, but was wondering if anyone knew of any more?

From the website;
Looking for information for a friend that has a 1916 Case 40 hp traction engine and needs a front flue sheet.
Can you send us in the right direction with any suggestions on who can make this head sheet.

Here is a link that shows the door sheet for a locomotive boiler with a keyhole firebox being formed.

Thanks for the great link. I enjoyed the pictures and I want to work there.

A sledge hammer has always been one of my favorite tools. I still have a rosebud torch like that that I kept when I sold out my machine shop in 1993.
