Metal angle length supplier?
« on: December 01, 2018, 01:59:35 PM »

Does Anyone know of a supplier of metal angle in 10mmx10mm x1mm or 15mmx15mm x1mm dimensions. Need some useful suppliers for scratch building. I don't want to use styrene. Thanks, Alan.

I think B&Q used sell  Aluminium profiles in various sizes.

I manage to pick up some stainless angle when our local homebase was shutting down.

B&Q, but likely only the big "wharehouse" branches.
