Hi,

I'm looking for short run sand casting places that do smaller decorative parts. Thus far most places only do automotive parts and arent interested. The part is a .25" thick disk with a slight bend in it, to be made from aluminum. Like a small dish with one edge bent upwards. Im open to other processes aside from sand casting. I'm also looking into sheet metal but not sure its a good fit.

thanks!

We've used these guys before for a few sand cast prototypes, so I'm guessing a short run would be good for them.

Have you got a sketch or something of what you're trying to make?

Sheet metal would likely be far more cost and time effective if it is suitable. How many are you making?
