Rhombus bevel glass supplies....where????

Loading thread data ...
Other than the points on the rhombii? Har, har.
Try looking in some of the stained glass wholesalers for "half house" or "full house" bevels.
This is a good source if you need quantities:

If those sizes aren't what you want, Mr. JavaHut who posts here frequently, would be happy to hand make them for you. (I think)

There are a considerable number of standard sizes of diamond shape bevels, (had to look it up to be sure we were talking about the same shape! Been a long time since I last took a math class.)
There are also a number of production shops, if you need quantity, where I would be of assistance is if you need limited quantity, like 12 or less.
and thanks Moonraker.

Well looking for "house" type bevels will keep me busy. I'm looking for volumes in the 200-400 range. Thanks for the mcgills link. To be more specific I'm looking for 2" and 3" wide by approx 12" long that have the same angle on each end pitched in the same direction (which means that the "half double house" on the mcgills page would be correct if one end was reversed so that it matched the pitch of the other).

200-400 is not alot when it comes to manufacturing bevels, alot of straight line machines need that much per 1/2 day of production, what you need is a drawing of what you want, after looking at the definition of a Rhombus, now we are talking about something else. Is this what could be termed and elongated "chevron" shape? What I am "seeing" by description is a point at one end and the reverse of that point at the other end of what may be described as a 2 (or 3) X 12.
If that is correct then I offer good luck, one end will be easy, the other insane. This is due to having a right angle cut and bevel toward the middle of the piece. I wouldn't want to do one, let alone 200-400.
Hopefully I am picturing this wrong.

Modifiy your search by using Parallelogram instead of rhombus. A rhombus is an equilateral parallelogram.

Hopefully this is worth a 1,000 words.

top picture shows clear and honey coloredrhombuses layed on diaganol. I thik the writing may be on the wall that I have to fall back to a flat glass instead of beveled.

OK, there is no problem beveling those, and the straight line places will do it easily, any place that does straight line machine beveling should be able to do it, you decide on the width, 2" or 3" , or some of each. They can run those by beveling opposite edges, then cutting into strips and beveling the long edges. You can buy 2 "X 36" straight line bevels and have the ends done, but for 200-400 pcs, you would be better, for price, ordering them from the Mexican or Chinese suppliers. If you can't find someone to work with on this job, post that problem here again and someone should be able to be found. Importers are in southern California, you should be able to work with them.

Not all of the elements in this design are rhombii. Some are parallellograms. Anyway, those pieces can be beveled....if you can find someone to make them for you.
I have built this very panel or a variation of it, (in flat glass). Adding bevels would be a nice touch.
