Looking for Oval Porthole
I am trying to help a friend. He is need of Flanged brass Oval Portholes: 25mm x 15mm.
I tried a Google search with NO luck. Does anyone know of a dealer who has these? Please let me know.

So, a real oval port or window frame would be made by casting or with bent extrusions. How would one make such a shape in brass at this size?
> CNC machined
> 3D printed wax for investment casting
Either way, it sounds like a custom job and $$$
Actually, wouldn't be a hard shape to do in investment casting at Shapeways:

Don't know what shape he needs for flange and depth, but I drew this simple part in 10 minutes. 25x15 oval x 3mm deep, with a 1mm thick flange behind... total volume is 0.36 cm3, you can do the math for cost at Shapeways for investment cast brass.
