    Aluminium casting

    Does anyone know of a person or company that could cast an aluminium valve cover using another as a former?? Does Frank at Kamakustom still do stuff like this? Any contact details for someone that can do this would be really appreciated
    Thanks.....Nige

    Problem with doing that is the 'copy' will be a few percent smaller if they pattern straight off the original!

    Phil at croft castings could certainly do it. But Im thinking it will be pricey. He has cast a few things for me in the past.
    Worth a call.

    And that's why Pattern makers and model makers use contraction rules.
