Default A Different KInd Of Burner Adapter

We have a job coming up, where the customer ordered the boiler directly from the manufacturer, then as an after thought bought the burner directly from a totally different manufacturer. Unfortunately, while they both have the same BTU rating, they do not exactly fit together, their only options are to either, (A) buy another burner (roughly $21,000) or (B) have us make an adapter to make them fit and work together (roughly $2000-$3000). They selected option B.

1 - laid out the bolt holes on boiler plate
2 - laid out the bolt holes and pilot cut-out for burner plate
2 - the plate to the boiler cut out and bolt holes drilled
3 - the plate the burner will bolt to, cut-out, with pilot cut-out and bolt holes

Another nice job!!! I have been using a drill with a small center drill in it instead of a center punch and it works good. I can no longer hold a hammer in my right hand due to arthritis and my left hand has no idea how to use a hammer. Try it I think that may like it.
