Toronto Builder, you might give these folks a call if you haven't already. They seem to be quite reasonable on other metal, and they have often cut me a foot or two or three with no extra charge. http://www.metalsplus.ca/

Just a happy customer of theirs.

There is a club in Toronto ... https://sites.google.com/site/tsmeweb/

I have been to a couple of meetings, but I am a bit farther away in Lindsay and don't drive at night.

Great thx for the tip. Its nice to have many alternatives. I live about 10 -15 minutes from a metal supermarket store, but they lack copper and grey iron... whitby isnt too far and its on the way to my fav cigar store.. so I'll check them out soon.

I will likely have to pass on a project for the time being as I have some medical stuff coming up that will keep me out of the shop for a while.

Also, I have a 3 1/2" Britannia Locomotive on the go at the moment.

Nice my brother Tom and I got interested in model engineering due to live steam locos like the Britannia.

I too have some plans kicking around.

p.s. my brother is happy to act as a team member on his own, so we can fill two spots
rotary table is a must have for sure, but don't forget the indexing head for gear cutting if you're interested in that end of things.

i have cut gears and look for any excuse to do so, but not many of my current projects requires any gearing

i have casting equipment as well.

what sort of things have you built ?
