Extruder recommendations
« on: November 03, 2019, 12:42 PM »
Hello! Can anyone recommend a good aluminum extrusion company that would be receptive to small runs, responsive to new customers, and has machining and anodizing capabilities?

Thanks very much,
Rob

I use Faztek, and can recommend them. They can do machining and I understand they have started to do some anodizing. Let me know if you want a referral (I have no financial relationship with the company).

All the extrusion projects I've done on my Instagram (dusty.tools) used Faztek.

Hey Ben,

Thanks very much for the suggestion, but unfortunately I should've been more specific. I'm actually looking for a custom extrusion, so Faztek won't do, but the good news is that after months of pushing on this with multiple potential suppliers there's some light at the end of that tunnel. Hopefully there'll be some definitive news soon.

Cheers,
Rob

Have you tried contacting the guy who did the Track Tubes project? Pretty sure he had those custom made.  I have his email address if you want to PM me.

I did! Small world. He suggested a couple of companies and one of those is in the running. Thank you for thinking of it.
