material help needed

material help needed

I am in need of a .125 x 4' x 16' sheet of 2024 t3 for a restoration project.  Any ideas where I could buy a sheet this long or a company that uses longer then standard sheets.  Any ideas would be very helpful.


RE: material help needed

I think you are going to have to go to Reynolds or Kaiser and special order this.
Most jobbers are going to carry 12"-0" stock as standard.
You may find a supply house in the Pacific north west that supplies Boeing, or a  supplier in Atlanta who supplies Lockheed

Here is a link to Kaiser.
Good luck.
