The machine shop charged me $850 to make both pieces.

I mean $850 (3 years ago) for a one off part (base plate and bolt). Now they want $1354.20 (rip off). This is an online service. They provide free design software and I used it to make a stl file and 3D printed it before submitting it to be made. Otherwise I would have to find someone locally to make it. 3 years ago I was still working for a living, now I'm retired and can look around for a machine shop for the next oil filter adapter.

Man. I'm glad to be able to access and know my way around a lathe and milling machine. I can manufacture such parts for a lot cheaper...
