    I have not seen or heard something like this.
    You can ask a nearby machine shop if they can do this.
    10mm if quite thick and that maybe a problem. Not a lot of shops have the proper machine (plasma or laser cutter) to cut a metal that thick in a rounded shape.
    Another problem is a whole sheet metal of that thickness is very heavy, You'll need someone to help you carry it if the shop does not have this sheet metal.

    Good luck!

          thanks joey81, waterjet has a very good clean cut, but the costs of cutting surpass the costs of metal sheet, kahit oxy acetylene sana, ako na mag polish...

            Also consider the fact that cutting with plasma or oxy-ace will apply heat to your workpiece and might cause it to warp. Whether that is acceptable or not depends on your application.

              darwin535,

              Bro, find a junk shop that sells angle bars, steel bars and plates etc, bring with you a round template,
              perhaps made of plywood with your required diameter, they can use that as guide when cutting the
              10mm thick plate with an oxy-acetylene. I am pretty sure they'd be willing to do that service. You pay
              for the plate and the cutting services, you can just do the grinding of the edges and polishing of the
              finished plates as you have mentioned in your post.

              Don't worry about warping, it will not warp that 10mm steel plate.
