Aluminium warehouse is good, however I recently needed to order quite a large amount of aluminium (about 300kg) so shopped around and found this place was quite a lot cheaper:

Yes he does,
Though I have to thank both of them for posting/reposting that link as they where able to give me a stockist for PB102 Bronze in 1mm sheet form which I need for making reeds. Thanks to both of you on that one.
Due to unforseen circumstances, which mainly consist of my missus running off with a bloke with more money than me I have decided to have a bit of a clear out as I have too much stuff to move.
Would consider selling my cnc router (the one in this build thread) if someone makes a sensible offer. Its all in working order and was only being used last week. I will put full specs on if I get any interest but this build thread should give you a pretty good idea.
Also got a nice german 'leinen' lathe, which I may consider selling. Does weigh about half a ton so not something that will fit in the boot of your car! Will do screwcutting etc, 3 and 4 jaw chucks, faceplate, powerfeed on both slides, even have a digital readout for it that I never got round to fitting. Will post details if anyone is interested.
Oh and her pissing off is the best thing that she has ever done, I have never been happier..!! :-)
Let me know...

Just like to say what a nice job you made of your CNC machine!
I've been hit by the DIY CNC building thing and can't wait to start, I rushed into ordering some rails and ball screws but wish I had waited as finding the right aluminium profile in the right size is proving difficult. Still that's me all over.....obsessed!
This is what I want to try and build index.php
this forum has certainly made it easier for me!
Nothing is for sale! Missus gone and a new one in her place... Happy days.! Word of advice, if you are married to a control freak you probably wont realise how happy you could be until until you split up, after which you look back and think "Did I really live like that...!"
Now things get even better... my new other half is very interested in the CNC kit which I have and would like to get to know how to use it so we can start up a sideline business. A woman that is interested in CNC??? she actually wants to get in the workshop more than me.!
Should be spending a bit more time on the forum from now on.
