Where's a good place for Aluminum, Sheet metal?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all, It's looking like I might need a small sheet of aluminum for mounting my radiator. And if I'm going as far as cutting one sheet for the bottom of my case, I might as well try doing something for my top radiator too.

I'm new to working with metal. Most people I knew back home would just get scrap form work.

I don't have the option for scrap. I'm in North Carolina, Jacksonville area.

And would like to know if there are any chain stores, or stores where this can be purchased.

I currently don't have any cases available to scrap either.

I know you can get small pieces at lowes or home depot. Try going to your local welding shops or steel yard and ask if you can have scraps. I used to get all of my angle iron for free just by asking...

What he said. look up sheet metal shops online in your area, might also be under Air conditioning (as in a/c duct work). I haven't ordered from them for sheet metal but Amazon.com has a variety of metals under Industrial & Scientific › Materials › Metals & Alloys › Metal & Alloy Sheets

THX all. I didn't have the patience to order again; I need to work on my rig this weekend. I found 6 X 18" at home depot. The only size they had in aluminum
