The finish on the cones will be as they were delivered from the foundry. In order to keep the cost down we intentionally asked the foundry to not deliver the cones with a high degree of finish grinding. We did this to save on cost and also to prevent "over grinding" of the delivered product.
We feel that most smiths would be willing to spend a little time with an angle grinder and flap disc to save considerably on the delivery costs.

Floor cones are 36" high and taper from 1 ¼" down to 10" at the floor. There is a 12" flange around the bottom and the cones have two tong grooves
Poured from high quality ASTM A536 65-45-12 Ductile Iron. The picture shows two ports near the top that are actually tooling ports for foundry use but they also come in handy for bending oddly shaped pieces. Insert a bar in these ports to keep the cone from rolling around during transport.
Cones are available for pickup at the shops of Byron Doner, Bill Kendall and Gerald Franklin. They will also be available for sale and pickup at our conference at Perry, OK in October of each year.
If you want them shipped, we can do that.
If you want us to ship a cone to you, contact Gerald Franklin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 580-467-8667 during Oklahoma daylight hours. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
