Some time back I started a thread with a link to a supplier on eBay. I believe the title is Aluminum Plate. Look at my Dan Squared - Part 2 for how I cut them out and file them to shape.

I would love something in the range of 6-12mm thick and at least 10x15cm if anyone is up for a trade.

Hello John!!

I would like to say aluminum is used in numerous industries and is extremely popular amongst engineers, aircraft manufacturers, car manufacturers, in power generation and even MacBooks.

Aluminium is a lightweight, yet sturdy metal making it a great candidate for machining purposes. Advanced techniques have emerged for machining aluminum over the past few years, the development of high speed machining techniques, along with with fast metal removal strategies have increased aluminum cutting speeds.

You can get and you can find more about aluminum from here-

Cheers!!
