for your Engineering Projects
Feel pride in your project, complete your job on time and within budget. Use Owl Castings and our bespoke metal casting service.
Are you ready to meet your next supplier?
Owl castings is the result of a chance meeting between an experienced Model Engineer and a Mechanical Engineer specialising in design, David Leahy and Sam Baynham.
We know that you want to create your engineering projects to the highest standard so you can display the finished result with pride.
We understand how frustrating it can become to complete your projects within a reasonable time frame. We know how hard it is to find a foundry who is willing to work with one-off bespoke components, or low volume production runs.
And of course, we appreciate how much work goes into these projects. Being your pride and joy, we know how great it feels when a project is complete. Owl Castings will be by your side through every step of the process. Contact us now to find out more.
CAD AND PATTERN
We turn your data into a suitable CAD file and create a castable pattern using a range of additive manufacturing techniques.
CAST AND SHIPPING
We will cast in a range of metals and securely ship your items in a timely manner. Have the confidence that our quality will meet your standards.
How can we improve your projects?
There are very few foundries left in the UK who can economically cast small raw casting orders of iron, brass, bronze and aluminium.
Our vision is simple... provide a single resource that can design, prototype and cast a part for the hobbyist or small volume engineering facility.

What our customers have said:
'I have used Owl Castings on several of my projects to generate both brass and bronze castings. In all cases the part produced and the service has been to a great standard. It’s a pleasure working with a casting facility who also share the same passion for steam and historic locomotives. They are a great asset to any model engineer wanting unique castings at low prices.'
Duncan, RADMEC (Ramsgate and District Model Engineering Club, wwwradmec.com) Secretary.
“Owl Castings work is faultless and there turn around is within weeks. I’ve used both there mould and CAD services which produce stunning results - HIGHLY recommend. Steve - Lichfield.”
'Owl Castings have produced some custom parts for my model steam locomotive. The whole process was extremely easy and they offered friendly help and advice at every step to ensure that the finished product was exactly what I wanted. My outline sketches were converted into 3D drawings that were made available on line for me to view and approve, with any changes being made very quickly without any problems. On completion of the drawings a 3D printed part was then supplied for final approval before the casting was carried out. The time taken to get my parts from start to finish was only a matter of weeks which far exceeded my expectations. The service provided was very professional throughout, which I would thoroughly recommend to others.'
'I must say well impressed by the service .
Recommend I certainly will.'
'Very pleased, the size is spot on, just right for machining tolerance. Thank you for your excellent service.'
