This plate rack was born out of a desire to a use the leftover metal from the cut aluminum plates we sell.  The left over metal is melted and alloyed with silicon to increase its strength, then cast into the plate rack ends.  One of the weaknesses of antique cast iron plate racks was that the screws used to hold the wooden runners would strip out causing the rack to get wobbly and eventually fall apart.  This rack uses dual steel threaded inserts in the wood runners so that it will remain sturdy for life, and allow for disassembly and reassembly may times. The aluminum alloy is less brittle that cast iron so it will not develop cracks over time.
