I've have looked off and on for a few months on various parts websites
for 12mm barstock to make some jigs for my TR12 Hitachi router. I've
located stainless steel, but sells for $10.00 a foot or so!
Someone know of a source for $2-$3 a foot metric bar stock? I've even
tried to talk a couple of friends into looking for me in Canada to no
Telephone book. Telephone. Scrap metal dealers. If they haven't
got what you want, ask them who would be likely to, and get a telephone
number. No prob.
You ever think of making the jigs out of different sized barstock?
Or square? Or wood?
I don't know why you'd have problems. I've been researching about
square tubing, and about every place that has square, has round. This
is new I'm talking about, mild steel, I'm not interested in stainless,
but they do have it. And, they have metric sizes, but I'm not picky on
the sizes for most of what I want, only on two pieces, and they don't
need to be totally exact, just close. And, I'll be buying locally,
EVERY THING THAT HAPPENS STAYS HAPPENED.
