Whenever we had something galvanized, we'd always wind up finding all 
sorts of other stuff in the shop to send with whatever we were 
galvanizing, just to get up to the minimum.  We'd always wind up with a 
lot of galvanized bracketry of one sort or another. (In a physical 
effects shop, you're always welding up some sort of fixture or frame to 
hold something.  Normally we'd just spray paint them black to keep them 
from rusting or looking too ugly: rarely were the welders all that 
skilled and covering over all the blobs and bad spots was just part of 
the game.  So we'd wind up with a pile of weird custom brackets and 
fixtures, and we'd just send them off together.

They quote the price in dollars per hundredweight of whatever it is 
being galvanized.  (i.e. it's not charged by the zinc weight).
