Need Aluminum source near middle TN

Postby Dirtclod » Mon Jul 31, 2017 2:28 pm

Anybody know of a source for aluminum sheets near Nashville or middle TN. I need 4X8 painted or coated and 5X12 or 5X10 mill finish.

I have called a few places locally and all they carry is 4X8 mill finish.

Thanks in Advance

Ryerson was able to get the 5x10 & 5x12, but in 0.060" as I recall. They would ship it to Chattanooga. Not middle TN, but if you run out of options....They will add the plastic coating for an additional fee.

I ended up getting the 5' aluminum from Wabash Trailer shop in Chattanooga in 3003 mill finish 0.040, but without the plastic coating. I'm going to have to find a way to clean it up when it's completed. They cut whatever I needed off of a 103" wide roll. A local metal supplier had 4x10 mill finish 0.040" that I used on the sides.

In hind sight, I think I made the right decision by using 0.040" instead of 0.060".
