Default Aluminum Extrusions

On occasions we have need of a small quantity of a custom extruded
aluminum shape. For the very small quantities we mill the desired
shape from bar. For the larger quantities, still smaller then most
extruders like to mess with, we pay the price and have the shape
extruded. And other times we pass the project because the cost is
simply too restrictive. Over the years we've scoured many online
business directories, phone books, and search engines hoping to
uncover that one gem of an extruder who embraces small quantity
requirements. We would enjoy any ideas anyone would wish to share
about any extruders you my know or additional places or resources
where we might look in this quest. Thanks, K.
