Welcome to FPI’s Quick Ship Online Store
Shipped in one week or less
We are a custom job shop. Our store contains some common standard parts which are stocked and priced for shipping in small quantities. Should you start buying these products regularly we have to move it to our normal production to be handled by emailed P.O. or email order. Our normal production is typically 4 weeks or less but can be longer at times we are very busy. Please “click” on any category for a complete list of parts, pricing and to order. Contact us directly for all other work not in the store or larger orders.
This store should supply manufacturers, designers, metal fabricators, start-ups, hobbyists, teachers, metal artists and others quick turnaround for projects.
Please keep in mind that we are a full service job shop. If you don’t see a size, hole pattern, shape, quantity, material etc. that you need, please fill out our RFQ, or contact the quote department. If we don’t already have existing tooling, we have the capabilities to create the tooling, in house and quickly, as needed for most any job.
Check Plates Spun
In our store we are offering 22 gauge (.028″) cold roll steel (crs) check plates as stocked items in the sizes shown below with a 13/32″ (.406″,1/8 IPS) hole. Our tools are made to provide 20 to 25 thousandths extra clearance. Typically these check plates are used for capping off objects or closing rough edges and providing a center location.
Brass check plates will be offered shortly in our store and will come in the same sizes as the steel. Currently they can be purchased by contacting us directly at or phone 760-373-8292.
We will gladly do a different thickness, height, center hole size or other materials (brass, copper aluminum) in any of the item diameters shown below by quotation. If you don’t see the size you want we can easily make tooling in-house to the size you need in our machine shop very quickly. We have an extensive collection of other flat can tooling ½″ up to 18″ which could possibly work for you, please contact us on these also.
Our store check plates are made 3/16″ high and the diameter/name shown is the inside diameter plus .020″ to .025″ oversize to accommodate finishes. An example part called a 4 1/2″ check plate would be made 3/16″ high with an inside dimension of 4.520″ to 4.525″ on the ID (note 4 1/2″ in decimal form is 4.500″).
