Re: Aluminum Rod

3mm=0.1181" don't know a possible sae subsitute.
4mm=0.157480315" Can you sub 5/32" (0.15675) closest?

1) check with some of the industrial metal suppliers;

2) know someone with a lathe, that could turn you down a length of each?;

3) try a european source.

Best I can come up with. Sorry

Re: Aluminum Rod

Here ya go. I don't have any personal experience with MC, but it's been documented here that you need to have an account with them, and shipping could be a problem. Do you know anyone south of the border, or someone near home that does have an account.

It won't post the actual page, so look at metric multi-purpose aluminum alloy 6060. Your sizes are there.

Good luck. Daren
If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
