NTLK Way to arrange production of custom Newton part?

I got a positive response a while ago when I asked about soldering issues,
so here's another shot: has anyone on this group ever tried to have a custom
plastic body manufactured for a computer part? I'm thinking of a special
stand for the MP2K, but it would have to be manufactured, rather than done
by hand. Any ideas on the type of company that would do this, and what the
costs would be for <100 units?

BTW, for those waiting on audio adapters, I'm very close to mass production
capability. I was able to make them individually but the result was not very
sturdy. I've hammered out most of the production mistakes (epoxy casting is
more challenging than I thought), so I hope to get operational by next week.
Since I can't find a plaintalk socket supplier, I'm going ahead with 1/8"
connectors or RCA jacks.
