I'm replacing a few damaged parts and have discovered that the shipping costs for very little material from the factory is OUTRAGEOUS! So, being a perfectly capable engineer and fabricator, I will be drilling my own holes. Does anyone know a source for 3/4" X 3/4" X 0.093" extruded 6061-T6 angle? I don't usually mind paying a little extra for great work, but when the shipping exceeds the cost of the parts, it's time to look at alternatives.
My .025 sheet and everything thicker that I needed full sheets of as well as the .025 angle came from pacific steel which is local to me on the west coast. Better prices than any of the aircraft suppliers and no shipping cost. The only thing they couldn't supply aluminum wise was .016. The .093 angle is proprietary to Zenith
