Were can we find Aluminum Section????

Were can we find Aluminum Section???

I’m sorry, but could you clarify what you mean?

If you mean tubestock, there are several places that ship, but my team uses a more local supplier, Discount Steel, which also sells aluminum tube stock, hex stock, and all sorts of other things.

If you mean an extrusion (one of those ones with a funky profile), then you’re looking at 80/20 or Bosch extrusions, which can be found with a quick google search. There are probably other manufacturers, but those are the ones I know of.

Please be specific with what you are looking for so we may help you.

Assuming that you are looking for a metal supplier, a quick google reveals the following.

little pricy compared to local suppliers but they do custom cuts

10% discount if you buy over $100. You can also get an additional 5% by getting a referral from an existing customer.

is great too. I’ve ordered from both Online Metals and Speedy and generally just pick who has the best price on something.

Our team has used both suppliers in the past but this year we have ordered more from onlinemetals.com due to their selection of 6061 extrusions and their prices.

Their price on 7075 rod isn’t bad either, unless you need it tomorrow from McMaster.

VEX Robotics (the company I work for) sells some aluminum C-Channel and Angle with pre-punched 1/4" holes on 1/2" spacing. Maybe this is what you’re looking for?

These are highly recommended by my team. We use them most years because they simplify build substantially when you are still playing around with placement and mounting options, and they have starter lightening holes when you need them.
