3mm aluminium sheet

Buying 3mm aluminium sheet on Ebay, looking at a particular seller, it works out at £50 per square meter. Then there is postage which is about

2/3rds the price of the sheet.

I'll actually need somerthing like a 500mm x 500mm sheet to cut out the sheet for a project I'm engaged in (which requires a 410mm x 300mm sheet).

I suppose, being as green as grass, that £50 per square meter for 3mm aluminium is cheap.

Does anyone know a supplier of 3mm aliminium sheet near the Wakefield/Huddersfield/Dewsbury area? I live in this area and If I could pick up some sheet myself, that would dramatically reduce my costs. I'm wanting 4 sheets. TIA.

Try to find a sheet metal or light fabrication business in your area, they will easily be able to guillotine your sizes for you from eg 8' x

4' sheets if they can be persuaded it's worth their while.

If you are not requiring a particular spec then tout around your local scrap merchants. I bought a sheet of 3mm about 1000 x 600 with protective film the other day for £5 Another day 800 x 50 x 50 bms plus 25mm od x 800 bms plus 50 x 25 x 600 bms plus plus 35mm od x

200mm continuous cast iron bar plus some other pieces all £13.

Turned down some Stainless pieces as they wanted £7 I I did not really have a need. (At the time, will probably regret it )

Sounds expensive to me. Try your nearest Metal Supermarket.

Discarded traffic signs are 3mm alu. I use them for rear and front panels of electronic casings. Dirk
