I recently had S. K. Grimes fabricate a mounting flange for an old brass lens, and they did a wonderful job. While not cheap, you can certainly appreciate the workmanship that went into it.

I bought a flange for a #4 Ilex from Grimes, and it was beautiful. Almost a shame that you cannot see it when the shutter is mounted. It also cost fifty bucks.

They do very nice work, unfortunately charge more than I like to pay.

I do most of my own restoration work, but when it comes to custom metal fabricating, Grimes is the best.
