I need a piece of aluminum that is 1/4" thick x 1 1/4" wide x 4" long. Those dimensions are as small as it can be, but if the piece of aluminum is bigger that's fine. I checked at Lowe's and Ace Hardware and neither of them have it. They had some 1 1/4" wide x 1/8" thick x 12" long which I went ahead and bought because I can use it but it's not really what I need. Any suggestions on a place local would be appreciated. Thanks!

There was a place on flebay selling this alloy called FORTAL. Machines like aluminum, tough as steel. Prices were cheap to.

Fastenal has just what I need. I don't think they have a shop locally though.

EDIT: never mind they do have a shop here.

Where in Ok. are you? I bought some from Trident in Tulsa..
You could also try a local Machine shop. They might have some drops.

Trident is on Mingo Rd. between 55th and 56th right by the railroad tracks. When we were doing the motor mounts for the E Stratus that's where i got the material from. As a matter of fact i still have a 2" x 1/2" x 20' stick (cut in half) standing in the corner if ya want a chunk of it just yell and i'll meet ya or something.

Thanks guys. I picked up a piece today that worked for what I was doing. If I need some more I'll get hold of one of you. That stuff was not fun to cut with a jigsaw. I'll have to find a better way.

1/4 is not too bad to cut as long as you use ALOT of WD-40.

I just used some thin oil I had. My blades were fairly worn which didn't help.
