I can't find a place to buy what I'm looking for, so I need a person who can fabricate metal to help me out with this grilling accessory...
I want a burger press that I can use on a griddle surface to form hamburger patties. I need it to be 6" in diameter with a lip that is 3/8" deep that will allow me to press a ball of ground beef into a perfectly round patty while on the hot griddle. It obviously needs a handle as well. I'd like the press part to be made out of 3/16" steel and the handle could be made out of whatever is strong enough to last a lifetime...
Any thoughts or possible helpers?

no fab shops in your area?

try welding shops. i had a guy that could/would make just about anything.
They cut some pig shapes for me to use for UDS handles. Price was better than local shops.

JM, I love this idea! The challange with the finished product is making sure the cook can remove the burger easily enough. My suggestion would be a 2 piece system. A base griddle with "rings" that would "lock" onto the griddle. When it was time to flip the burger, you could remove the ring and flip the burger.
