Are these blanks casted as one piece,or are they
fused ribs on a face and/ or back plate,and what is the pattern? hexagonal,triangular,sounds like
one piece,you mentioned a water knife,im assuming
this is used to create the rib like pattern in back of the face plate.
I would be interested,like any atm this all depends on the cost,most atms as you probably
know ,cannot afford to spend thousands on a blank
in this range of diameters.give me a quote on a 20"X3"
