  “My work as a sculptor relies on very highly polished, mirror finish aluminum. I had known about Henry's for years but always assumed they would be too expensive for me. But over time I had to recognize all that it took for me to polish aluminum - the time, high-priced consumables and the filthy mess created by polishing. I also had to admit that my results were often less than perfect. And I realized that polishing took me away from the things that was most important - creating new work. So now Henry's does all my polishing. I'm actually saving money, time and energy, and my results are far better for it.” J.P. - Metal Sculptor


 “Henry's is the best polishing shop in LA. They are highly skilled, highly attentive to detail, courteous, communicative and able to take on complex jobs that require the highest level of customer service. Definitely five stars!” Kathryn A.
