Vintage Lighting Two things I'm going to really miss being able to get

Hand drafting (on one square edge per panel) and metal working skills on the 22ga side panels from a recycled microwave. Arbor punch at work with lots of dies, but still going to be a suck on making one of the most frequently missing parts to a Altman Leko. And one where if you don't have clean edges, it might cut into conductors. (Obviously white enamel paint will be buffed off before use than re-painted high temp.)

Shutters... can only grind so much off the leading edge, certainly not enough to fix this one. Made shutters in the past... they work but always a question of what gauge and type of steel to use given higher difficulties with each better grade to home fabricate.

Any chance City Theatrical is going to run a line of both parts?

Generally, you can get anything you want. It's more a funding issue.
