View Full Version : Self employed new parents

My husband and I have our own business. I have the ticket and my husband just does it. We're new parents (I haven't been doing much welding of late)
We make gates, trellis, candle holders etc: We have been looking on the internet for a wholesaler who sells candle cups and have been unlucky. If anyone knows of a place we would love to know of it.Thanks for the help.

Do a search for: Classic iron supply, Lawler Foundry, and King metals. They are large ornamental iron suppliers. I have order some ornamental items from those places in the past. They have online ordering, and hopefully have what you are looking for. I am not sure what style you are wanting but I have made some cups before on my lathe and it was nothing to it. Take one to a good machine shop that has CNC capabilities and they might can supply you some for a good price. especially if you buy in bulk. Good luck ~Jackson

My wife spends tons of money on the candle thing....I'll see if I can find the name of the supplier. They have metal holders, glass holders, and all the candles you can think of, for what these things cost, you just can't build it cheaper.
I answered on on of the other places you asked the same question-
and the best I know is that most of the old line stamping houses are gone now. I used to get candle cups for a quarter or so in bulk- I cant imagine a cnc machine shop making you one for anywhere near that cheap unless you are buying tens of thousands.
The classic candle cups are stamped from 22 ga, and they take maybe 1 second each to make.
Jg Braun proabably has the best selection at the lowest prices, with no big minimums- one place I used to buy from, which has since gone out of business, usually wanted a 500piece minimum for candlecups, leaves, and other ornamental stampings. And they were still grumpy at me, as a small customer- their big customers bought 1000's at a time.
