Hi all

Before Covid I used to go to my local metal stockist ASC in Peterborough and get of cuts of brass and aluminium at prices so low ,made me feel like I was robbing the place. Now though because of the pandemic they are not letting the public in, along with others that I have tried in my area, Does anyone know of a stockist in my area that has of-cuts fore sale. I am fed up with paying FleeceBay prices.

Yes you would think so . but according to most of the people I spoke to on the phone its not going to make much difference straight away. One said call back in a couple of months when things go back to normal.

Find a local machine shop go with a couple of tenners in your pocket and you go home with headlights pointing skywards.
