Palmetto Entrprises
« on: July 17, 2017, 08:44:58 PM »
Anyone know if this company is still in business? Called the # on their website and got a recording that it is no longer a working #. Found a # from '09 on this website. It did ring and got a generic VM. Left a msg. Doing the research, sounds like a good product, inexpensive and easy to use. Is there another company  that offers the same type of product?

They sell a phosphating solution. Works great and I hope they are still around.

Pulled out the bottles I bought several years ago and the label reads Owens Group, LLC, d/b/a Palmetto Enterprises, 12 Lovalley Way, Taylors, SC 29687, 864-907-4751.  No website as far as I know.

Did get a call back from the older #. The lady told me they closed down the business(Owens, Group), due to too much red tape involved.  Wished they had taken down their website. I did find a couple of other sites that have similar products, Allegheny Armory and Brownell. Will look into their products.

Don't know if they have a phosphate kit. But Caswell Plating does have black oxide, bluing, and cad plating. Number is 855-CASWELL or look online for Caswell Plating, Lyons NY

Try this email:

Anthony Owens <aso9592@gmail.com>

I bought a bottle last November.  Let us know if it works.

Stuff does work great.

Might try here too:

although I have never tried that stuff.  I think the concentration varies from manufacture's.  The Palmetto stuff didn't need anywhere near a gallon.  i bought a quart and it made 5 gallons.

The email address above (aso9592@gmail.com) is the best and only way to contact Scott (Anthony Owens) that I know of. I just purchased 3 quarts of the Zinc (gray) and he seems to currently have more of that but unfortunately according to him I just bought the very last quart of Manganese (black) that he has. He said he is hoping to have a new source by the end of the year.
I sure hope so because his stuff works great!

Did see Brownell, but called Allegheny Arsenal and ordered their Zinc Parkerizing kit for $29.95 + $13.00 shipping. Shipping was fast. Will see how it works.

That's interesting as he told me a few months ago he did not have any Manganese to sell, only the gray since his supplier stopped making but was hoping to have another supplier soon. Time to move to other suppliers I believe.

Chick, at first he told me that he had no more Manganese too and would not be getting any anytime soon but then I guess he found one bottle that he said someone had ordered in the past but never paid for and offered it to me.

If you are in a pinch for some I'll share half my bottle with you.  :)

Thanks Len as the offer is much appreciated! Luckily, had a friend who lent me some so I'm good but I have written down potential suppliers for the future aforementioned.
