Default Stickney Cast Iron Seat Do You Need One Cast?

I just got off the phone with our local foundry that does really great work. I bought an aluminum reproduction Stickney seat a while back and decided that I wanted a cast iron seat. It has been at the foundry for a long time and was told that they will be pouring it next week. I thought I would open this up to you guys if youíre interested in getting one made. I am getting two done now Ė splitting the cost with another collector. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THIS WILL COST! What Iím offering is this Ė we all split the cost equally. Iím not looking to make a profit, just thought I would help out fellow Stakkers.

I need to know if you are interested by Thursday night 1/21/2010 Ė I will call on Friday to increase the order. After that itís over.

If you are interested contact my son at: lausonking@hotmail.com

Please donít email me or PM me through Smokstak, just let my son take care of the details Ė he did offer

Marshal

Thanks for pinning this Craig!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I just got off the phone with Tom at the foundry and he was unable to give me a price per seat. He does not know how much mold time it will end up being, but did say every seat ordered will reduce the total cost. Its the best I can do so if you really want one you are going have to take the same leap of faith I did when I went into this alone. Its not perfect by any means - just thought you should know. Again if you are interested email my son at lausonking@hotmail.com a couple of people already have.

Last call everyone - I have 11 seats confirmed and one more pending. Let my son know by tonight (email above) as I will be firming up the order Friday morning. Glad to have been able to help a couple of Stakkers.

They are done just thought you would like to see the finished product. This is after a few hours of careful grinding.
