Folks,

I have some sheets of subj. aluminum I got as a part of a bigger lot. I don't need it: let's see if someone is interested and we can make a deal. I think we'll price it based on how many sheets you buy. I have it listed @ Craigslist atm for $1.50/sq ft for 2024 and $1.25/sq ft for 6061, but I realize shipping will probably be a pain and an expense; so I'll be willing to negotiate.

Manufactured by http://www.kaiseraluminum.com/

Selling whole sheets only, as many as you need. Obviously shipping it is mostly going to be the bulk factor, and not weight methinks.

It's in good shape; no corrosion; a few bucked edges here and there.

Alclad 2024-T3 0.010 (ten thousands thick)
8 sheets available:

36x64: 1 sheet
36x71: 2 sheets
36x72: 5 sheets

6061-T6 0.012 (twelve thousands) thick
7 sheets available:

36x63 1/2: 1 sheet
36x70 1/2: 1 sheet
36x71 1/2: 3 sheets
36x72 1/2: 1 sheet
36x73 1/2: 1 sheet

Let me know if interested.

Those sheets are thin enough to roll into a tube which would then fit in a box for shipping.

Bill,

I tried: I get about 12 inch diameter tube.... Afraid to roll any tighter 'cause feels like they might bend..

A 12" diameter roll in a box would ship cheaper than sending them flat and would be less prone to damage. Still, I doubt they would yield if you went smaller. We had some .025" 6061-T6 shipped here in a 15" box with no yield. You could probably roll that 2024 into a 6" tube and it would be fine.
