Help: Need Odd Size Mail Slot


HI: I have an odd sized Mail Slot in a metal residential security door that needs a mail slot that will fit 9.75 in w. X 3.0 in H.

I cannot locate anything. Can you recommend a manufacturer or a website that might carry odd sizes?

Thanks,

Tom

If a brand new one can;t be found--call' 'Salvage One'--that is a big architectural salvage yard some where on Chicago's south side---

Any piece of sheet metal can be used to line the slot hole and for the hinged slot door and interior trim plate you can make something out of Masonite and fasten it with sheet metal screws.
Labor time: 1 hr [?] not including fetching the parts.
