I'd think you should just be happy that you can get the part (parts) at all. Seems that everyone expects everything to be at their door in a couple of business days. That's fine for the imported crap that is made by the bijillions, but some things actually take time to fabricate.
I've done some casting work for fellas a few times. Its just a sideline I've done, not my primary business. I was asked to cast a piece for a fella that was fairly straight forward, but I told him it would be a while before I got to it, maybe as long as a month, as I didn't want to set everything up for one small part. He seemed okay with it. The next week he called wanting the part. Told him I hadn't even thought about starting on it yet. The next week he called again. Twice. I told him to come by the house to pick up his part. When he showed up, I handed him a chunk of brass, a couple of pounds of greensand, and a match. Told him it was a "casting kit" and if he wanted, he could take it and try to cast his own part.
He got the hint.
A week later, I had a couple more parts to cast, and finished his at the same time. He was pleased to be able to get the part and had an epiphany about how things work.
Be thankful you can even get the parts and have some patience.
