Reliable Small Shop Metal Fabricator for small gimmicks/devices?

Postby JimKane » June 8th, 2024, 8:25 pm

Can someone recommend a reliable custom Metal Fabricator - small one-man garage-shop type operation is ideal - whom they have used successfully, who can turn out small metal utility devices like: Dye Tubes, Card Holders, Coin Droppers, and other specialty metal hand gimmicks?

Seem the days of simply calling-up Owen's, P&A, or Abbott's, and hearing those magic words of: "No worries, we can make a few of those up for you Special Order in the shop" are long, long gone.

Anyone know some who is good and reliable doing this sort of work these days?

Thanks,
Jim

Not sure if they do custom, but they might put you in touch with someone, Airship Magic.

Tom, thanks for your suggestion, even if it's only a suspicion at this stage. I appreciate any help I can get in finding a fabricator. - Jim
