Hi folks. Looking for recommendations for an investment casting facility that can handle low volume work for small pieces in brass/bronze and large pieces in iron/steel.

I don't mind if two different companies handle the different projects.

Thanks

Chris

Where are you located? If I remember correctly, we used Quality Castings here in Orrville, OH to cast maybe six breakout bars for our coaches. They cast in gray and ductile iron. Price was reasonable. We gave them a sample to use as a pattern.
