Custom Order Options
You are welcome to create your own sizes. It is possible to start with features from one size and combine them with another size within the Rim, Cup, Throat and Backbore. We recommend matching diameters between each component for best results. All custom orders are individually designed and machined, which requires a minimum of 2 weeks to produce before plating.
