If I'm ordering a part from either a fabrication house or cut to size flats from a sheet metal supplier, should I be thinking of my flat pieces in terms of less than 12", so they can maximize a whole sheet of aluminum?
Or are the sheets slight great than 36", 48" etc. to allow.
If for example, I need a quantity of 12" x 10" pieces....would it be better to order 11 7/8 x 10?
I know there is very little loss from the blade cut......but I want to do it right.
