      ridesideways; call around for a good price. i think i payed under $300 for a sheet of 1/4dp alum. and MILL STEEL was over $600. that was a year ago.

        Bodybagger that was some math work slightly above me but I got the point,
        I'm much more the type of person to tell me your application and I will get you pretty close.

        Its always nice to have a brainiac like you around.
        I was on another site talking about beam reinforcement and we had quite a heated discussion as to how to strengthen a beam.

        I'm going to start a new thread and would appreciate you to chime in.

          I just want to add m thanks to Bodybagger and the others for this
          informative thread. My only complaint is that it brings back really
          bad memories of my college "statics and dynamics" course ... the only
          course I took where I burned the text book afterwards

          Seriously, thanks ... it's been cool.

            I suppose I was thinking that annealed aluminum would have a different E than T6 aluminum. But it sounds like that is not the case. Thanks very much for the informative information!
