Does anyone know of a source for 0,5mm sheets of engraving brass (CZ120 or similiar) ?

I have found sources for down to 0,7mm in thickness, but no luck finding 0.5mm.

Regards, Hauk

Unfortunately, that is CZ108 brass.
But maybe I am a bit too fuzzy here. Is the difference between CZ120 and CZ108 really significant when it comes to profile-milling 0,5 mm sheets with an endmill of about 1mm?

Have you tried searching for compo brass? The clock makers call it compo, don't know why.
