Go on line and check out Metal Supermarket(s) . com. They may have a dealer near you. I travel to Columbia, S.C. to buy some of my material. It's an 80 mi. round trip or more but I place an order and if they don't have it they order it for me. The last time I ordered 6061 it was $5.00 a sheet cheaper than AS&S. And it didn't have any dings on the edges like my last UPS shipment did.

Dillsburg Aero can supply any required 4130 and probably have the best prices in the country. Best of luck on your project and if I can help just holler. I'm in Hempstead.
