Casting Service

Please remove all stones from your scrap metal. The castings are only going to be as good as the metal you send in. It is not necessary but it can help if you send in 1/2 new metal with your scrap.

Please send in 2x's the metal required to make the castings. There needs to be enough metal for a sprue and button. All your metal will be returned of course.

When sending in wax patterns to be cast, do not worry about spruing the waxes as we prefer to sprue the waxes. YOU DO NEED TO WORRY about keeping the waxes seperated from your metal to insure the waxes arrive safely. Please don't toss your metal and waxes in a job envelope because the waxes will be broken when they get here. Pack your waxes carefully and away from the metal in a sturdy box. The post office provides "flat rate" priority mail boxes at no additional charge.

It takes about 1 week in shop to have us do your casting work. Please allow another week for shipping time back and forth.

You may send in a mold for us to inject waxes to be cast. If you need waxes from your mold to be cast, please see our Wax Pattern Price List for cost to inject your wax patterns prior to casting.

On large or very heavy items, casting rate is $1.00 per gram. Our flask rate is for average sized rings and charms and covers up to around 40 grams of castings per flask.

If you need a ring sized before casting, solid shank rings can be sized for $5.00 ea. If you need a ring cast that has detail around the entire ring, please contact us us for cost to do the sizing.

We prefer payment to be made by check or money order for all casting work. Please include payment when you send in your materials for casting. Return shipping is $8.95.

If your not sure how much to send, please email us prior to mailing and we can give you a total for your casting job as well as how much metal to send to have your casting work done. If you have any other questions;
