 Please refer to our FAQ page if you have further questions.


  1. These parts are not mass produced and  we use multiple machine shops, so surface finish, texture, and color may vary between batches. Colors may also look different depending on your screen, the lighting, and variations in anodizing.
  2. Please be sure to review our refund policy for cancelled and returned orders.
  3. Please see our FAQ page for information about international orders, import fees, and tariffs. We do not change the value of the shipment and we do not have control over your particular country's fee/tariffs/taxes.
  4. Brass parts come as machined and may show oxidation/discolor.  Assume you will need to do your final surface finishing using a flexible 3M sanding pad.  (The 3M 7448 usually works well).  Then, apply clearcoat, poly, or other coating to maintain the shine.
