Thanks

At least a couple dozen 8" not picky on the design. Might make or buy a pattern because shipping $$$$$ but i have a loading dock to ship to.

Thanks

Mike

John, is the price you quote for the pattern itself, or per wheel?

Thanks

That's the price for the pattern. You would have to find a foundry that has a 12 x 12 cope and drag.
