Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are you a full-service facility?

A. Yes. In addition to providing excellent castings, we also offer all the supplementary services. We make excellent production molds, from very small to life-size, for both industrial and fine art applications. We also employ excellent patinists for all your finishing and coloring needs. For specific questions about our services, please contact us.

Q. What is your typical turnaround time?

A. It varies. For part runs, e.g. auto parts, custom hardware, etc., we usually ask for 30 days from the completion/drop-off of the production mold. However, if a project requires a significant amount of research and development, that may figure into the overall time requirements. For a life-size art casting, our typical turnaround is 2-4 months.

Casting is a complicated process, which we pride ourselves on doing well. You can trust us to be honest with you about the time requirements for your project. Please contact us with any specific questions.

Q. Do you offer expedited service?

A. We do, depending on the volume of work in our facility at any given time. We ask for a 25% rush fee in addition to the total cost of service.

Q. Do you pour precious metals?

A. Not typically. While we do pour specialty alloys for industrial applications, our facility is not suited to precious metals. We do occasionally pour sterling silver.
