Are you looking for small sizes as available at most model shops (Cornwall Model Boats are good) or larger sizes for lathe work, in which case,

I recently ordered some phosphor bronze from these people http://www.maccmodels.co.uk/  which arrived 2 days later.

I'm not connected with either company but have received excellent from both.

Hi Andy,

Cornwall Model Boats, Westbourne Model Boat Centre, P&S Hobbies all supply K&N Metals and I am a satisfied customer of all of them.

For bigger stuff try Reeves 2000, Stuart Turner, Emco, Mallard Metals.

check out similar topics in the 'engineering techniques and materials ' section of the forum. your problem is faced by others. If you are after small modelling sections don't forget that Model Railways use them and there are rather more of those shops still around. also if you find a model rail exhibition it may well have some suppliers attending.
