I would really, really like to get my hands on some 3/16" x 1/2" aluminum bar -- 2024 would be nice, but 6061 would be acceptable. 3/16 x 3/8 would be acceptable, too, but if I had to have one it would be 3/16 x 3/8.
I need it for motor mount pads for model airplanes.
I have some 1/2" square bar aluminum Mystery Alloy (I suspect 2024), out of which I can make what I want, but it challenges the accuracy and strength of my (crappy) 3-in-1 machine.
Is there some place that just sells the stuff in cut-off lengths?
If not, does anyone on the list have some 3/16" thick plate of some suitable alloy of which you're willing to whack me out some pieces?
I'll be making some pads that are 2" long and some that are 2-1/2, and maybe some in between, so having some foot-long (or so) bars makes more sense to me than having a bunch of pieces that are cut to length.
