Bridge buckles needed for leather bags

Discussion in 'Request casting service' started by Jeremy Petty, Nov 14, 2018.

  1. I make leather goods and need about 10 bridge buckles out of brass. I've run out of options as the cheap alloy buckles from China are the only ones i can source now. For reference:

    The classic shape is more like the second link, the size needed is like the first. It needs it to accommodate a 1-1/4" strap inside the buckle and have a method of attachment. Tapped holes and backing plate are the easiest to work with.

    Any thoughts? Am I even in the right forum? I know a lot about leather, very little about metal working.

    You've come to the right place for castings, but looking at the pictures you linked there is alot more going on than just the casting to get to the finished part..
