The qty. is 15-20 parts (possilby repetitive orders).
Attached are some sample pictures of what I need. I have not drawn the part in AutoCadd yet, what I am looking for is:
1. Is there anyone that can do small orders (and keep the price low). A rough quote based from the pics. and dimensions listed below.
2. Is it cost effective to cast the part rather then bending aluminum and welding.
The part is cast from Aluminum, Measures 19" Long x 6" Wide and 5" Tall. The part can be as cast, I can do the machining that is required.
NOTE: The Cap Shown in the Picture Is Welded to the Casting, It Is NOT Cast Into the part.
Is this a part I can find in the junk yard? If so I can build-up a pattern, set gating, risers, runners etc to figure the complexity of the casting.
If it is not a scrap item, do you think it might be possible to get a chance to borrow the original to get the dimensions etc, or would you rather make a few detailed drawings with limits figured?
