I’m thinking of looking for someone to make a replacement plastic part for me, but I’d need to know approximate costs first. Don’t want to spend too much.
Here’s a picture of what I’ll need. It’s the handle for a plastic locker. It’s about 4" tall, the handle itself probably pencil-thin. It sits on a rectangular plate, and on the back of the plate are two plastic pins that snap in to holes. In the middle of the back is a rectangular fin that slips into a slot on the locker when it is closed.
I have an existing locker (that’s the photo) from which I could remove the existing handle and send it to the printer. I don’t have the skill to make a drawing. So that’d add to the cost.
Considering contacting the company that made the locker, which is still in business (Suncast) but the locker is stamped 1993 so I’m not hopeful they still make 'em or have the parts.
But, whatever I decide to do, I’m still curious as to how much a project like this would go for. How much does the resin cost? How much does it take to make a design from an existing piece? If you’ve got a printer - what would you charge?
