Seeking home machinists and foundry for short run projects

Postby dyoung » Wed Sep 16, 2009 8:41 pm

Hi Everyone,

First, thanks to Marty for his assistance.


I operate a modest historical reproduction shop. Occassionally we have need of machinsts and foundry folks (for lack of a better word).

If you are intersted in taking on short projects from time to time, please let me know.

--most runs consist of about 5-10 pieces
--Most pieces arent much bigger than 3 x 3 inches.
--We work with steel, bronze, brass, aluminum ....big plus if you can cast or machine steel!
--We can send models to mold up, or we can make the mold for you.


WE REALLY NEED PEOPLE WHO HAVE FOUNDRYS--especially those who can cast bronze and steel




Please contact me if youre interested, we can talk about projects. Make sure to let me know what metals you can cast efficiently.

Thanks!

I would be interested in making small parts in small quantities.

I do not do casting......yet.

My web page is located at the bottom of the post and should give you an idea what I can do.

PM me if interested.

Thanks,

My shop specializes in 1 to 10 piece orders. I'll occasionally take 25 piece orders, but I will turn down 26.

Thanks for your plugs folks.


We still REALLY need people with foundaries who can cast (if you have a friend who might be interested please let them know).

Or heck if you guys can recommend hobby foundry group, please direct me.


I will be talking to many of you regarding machining projects.

I've disabled the link, but it has been left in place. That's a good resource and may have a temporary problem. I'll restore the link if it is safe to use.
Thanks for the heads-up!

Ok! Did a little homework on the link. AVG suggested it was a safe site to access, which I did. After accessing, I ran a complete scan of my computer (using AVG) and came up clean.
Indications are the site is safe, but I welcome more input if you have something to offer.

I have re-enabled the link.
