    Default major long shot re aluminuim

    i need 2 small sheets of aluminuim and i think i have found a company in brum that suplies small bits.

    i cant recall the exact size off the top of my head but its something like 230mmx190mm that i need.

    my question is i need it to be under 500g so what thicknesses could i go for?

    dont want to get a sheet cut then find its too heavy for the job intended.

    thanks.

    they do 0.5mm-3mm.

    Easy! Try this site http://www.calculatoredge.com/matwei...erial%20wt.htm - your sheet grade isn't listed but there isn't a huge difference between the various grades of aluminium so just pick the next one up. Looks like 3mm should be fine (unless you mean 500g for both sheets together).

    if 3mm will work i will go for that for the extra strength. cheers
