Socket fabrication from A36 MS plate

Since there a non availability of a particular size open type socket readily in the stores, I am contemplating to fabricate the same from the subject plate.

I would to have your opinion/advise if the plate will withstand when 350 Nm torque is applied. The socket will be connected to 3/4" torque.
