Thread: Aluminium stock (billet/plate)
Where do you guys buy your aluminium for machining?
I'm after some offcuts for practising with, eBay is usually my go to online store, but most on there seems pricey. To the point where I couldn't buy the raw material for the same cost as a fully CNC machined part from the USA including shipping...
I'm in the north west England, and can travel for a good supplier.
I have a local steel stock holder, but want to start on alu.
Would welcome any pointers please chaps.
I'm down in Gloucestershire so my local supplier, Taybroh Alloys, is a good way from you...

How big offcut.?
Jazz CNC just some plate or square to start making some cuts into, reasonable thickness as I don't have much in the way of work holding. Maybe 10mm thick, and length/width any size really, as long as it's big enough to clamp down
Thanks Jazz, see pm :)
