Custom making or custom finishing hardware can be both time consuming and somewhat expensive. But if you have the need, we are here for you.
For simple to complex metal parts, our fine sand casting is one of the best and most versatile casting processes there is. It is an ideal casting solution for small quantities or large runs. Pouring hot metal into sand molds is an ancient method of manufacturing metal parts and metal items.
At Antique Hardware Supply, we use the sand casting process to produce a wide range of industrial and architectural metal parts. We supply finished parts that go through the complete process of design, mold engineering, rough casting, fine grinding, polishing and custom color finishing. Typical lead times range from five to seven weeks depending upon the quantities and complexity of your parts and the current reproduction parts queue. Prices for custom pieces typically start at $350 for small and simple parts and increase with size and complexity.
- Custom Items Have Longer Lead Times
- Custom Items Have Higher Prices
- Manufacturers May or May Not Accept a Custom Request
- No Discounts Are Available on Custom Work
- Some Items Have Minimum Order Quantities
If you need assistance on any custom casting, please send us some pictures of your item, a brief description with dimensions to sales@antiquehardwaresupply. We would be delighted to assist you and provide a quote.
