Cost of Aluminum
I thought I would throw an idea out for you guys and gals to maybe help with restorations and repairs.
I work for my family company here in Southern California. We manufacture surgical tools and do a process called metal spinning. With out going into tons of detail we use a good amount of sheet metal (aluminum, stainless, cold roll...) We use enough sheet metal to get basically the best bulk prices available from our mills.
That said, I was thinking if your local or are ever down in this area I would be glad to pass on the discount I get and you can pay what I pay.
If your interested, let me know when you would like it, how many sheets and what type of Aluminum and hardness you require. I imagine if it's a big order, I'd require a deposit. Small amounts I suppose I could do on the honor system.
And for all you people (including myself) who do not believe in things happening just because people are nice, I give you all my unknown word I won't make a penny off these sales.
