Are custom tolerances available?
Yes, please contact us by phone at (407) 862-4643 or by email at Info@LDSVacuum.com so we can discuss your requirements and provide you accurate pricing and lead times.

Can I use the nipple fabricator during the LDS vacation shutdown?
Yes, the only times that you can’t use the Nipple Fabricator is when it is down for maintenance.

How long does it take to build my custom nipple?
Lead times vary depending on what you are ordering, generally custom nipples below 40" will ship in 5 working days for quantities up to 5. For quantities greater than 5, delivery will be confirmed at point of order. The amount of time spent on the Custom Nipple Fabricator is all dependent on how long you choose to spend on it.

Is my custom nipple price set in stone?
No, we strive to maintain the lowest prices so if our competitors lower their prices we lower ours. Unfortunately, the reverse is true if tariff's or more taxes are implemented that raise our prices, we will do our best to absorb the increase but prices might increase. The price provided is an estimated price and is subject to change at any time.

Is shipping and handling included in the estimated price?
No, since this is just a custom nipple request, the price is just for the nipple itself.

Is my custom nipple polished? What kind of polish is used?
LDS provides OD Polish on custom nipples with a Tube OD of 4” and smaller.

What if the flange type I want is not available on the Nipple Fabricator?
We encourage you to contact us by phone at (407) 862-4643 or by email at Info@LDSVacuum.com and we will assist you from there.

Do I need to complete a Due Diligence Checklist?
If your final destination is outside the Continental United States, Alaska or Hawaii then yes. Puerto Rico and any territory of the United States must fill one out.

Can I return the nipple if I don’t like it?
No, all custom parts are non-returnable and non-refundable due to their custom nature.

Why does it say down for maintenance?
When the Nipple Fabricator is down for maintenance we are usually improving the codes, scripts, user interface or updating prices. We want to make sure that the user experience is fast and fluid.

How long will it be down for maintenance?
We always plan out our updates and improvements to ensure that they are completed quickly and have a minimum impact on a customer’s experience. UI, Coding and Scripting updates take at most 30mins. Updating Prices usually takes 15-30mins per block. A block consists of the minimum OAL to 96” and has approximately 370 parts.

How do I pay for my custom nipple?
Once you submit a request, the information provided will be looked over and one of our sale associates will contact you at the email provided on your request form and continue the process to make sure that you get the correct item.

I get an error message when I try to make a custom nipple, what’s going on?
