Hello everyone,
I dont post much on here but i do read a lot of whats going on.
Im about to move forward from my months of prototype work to milling the parts from aluminium.
I was going to purchase some 6061 aluminium from metal4u

12.7 x 152.4 x 1000 @ 42
9.52 x 152.4 x 1000 @ 24.01

minimum order of 75 for delivery.

Does anyone know of anywhere reliable and cheap to get stock from before i order?

Thanks Paul

Yes i looked at them but then read up on here and read some bad feedback about their service. wasnt sure if its a one off or anyone else has had issues.
the price seems good but i would rather pay a little more for peace of mind if need be.

Aluminium warehouse are fine Paul. I've dealt with them for years and had no problems at all.

It depends where you are.A local supplier,in Yate,Nr Bristol has no minimum charge and charges 10 for lorry delivery (within a certain radius).Find a material supplier that delivers to engineering firms near you and they will surely deliver (even to residential addresses) for a small fee.
