New Found Metals portholes

I am planning on replacing the portholes in my President. Been looking at NFM ports. They look great. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Here are some past threads on Newfound Metals.

I entered "Newfound Metals" in the search tool linked at the bottom of this post.

I have 10 of the NFM now. They are great portlights.

However, I also got their flyscreens, and that was a mistake. They are a PITA to fit, and the rubber-on-SS junction on the external side causes oxygen deprived SS and thus rust stains. The mesh can develop rust stains as well. Sure, it all cleans up OK and with colinite metal polish lasts pretty well, but I would suggest making custom internal (velcro?) screens.

We have 12 portholes all 12" from NFM. We are replacing the screens (which are made and chromed in China). The portholes are great and are well made and they do seal very well. They still look good after 10 years!
