This company is one of the smaller extrusion outfits, and I've used them
when I need something in small quantities where a custom tool isn't
They don't have the stupid minimums that Thermalloy and ilk foist on you ,
and their pricing for custom fabrication, such as cutting, drilling and
milling is very reasonable.
If you need sheetmetal work, talk to John overt at www.par-metal.com. He
also does full custom in proto and very small quantities at more than
reasonable pricing, as well as the standard products offered on the site.
Hope that helps,
