Ultimately the availability of parts like this are dependent on demand. If only one or two or even three people want and are willing to pay for something like this then it is very unlikely to happen. The costs of doing something like this means that the demand has to be more on the order of 10, 15, or even 20 people to make the whole process worth doing. I visited the pattern maker this afternoon and the initial price estimate to make JUST the pattern to make any castings from was not good. I.E. The initial up front costs before a single part is made do not look good. However I will know more in a couple of days.
