hi all, just thought i would let the U.K frequenters on this forum know about an ali supplier that i have found that you may or may not know about. http://www.aluminiumwarehouse.co.uk/ i was just looking up prices for a 2" round and compared it to same 2" stock i got from eBay. the place on eBay is the cheapest i have found so far, but as normal it's the P+P that gets you. so for comparison...... the 2"od x 500mm from eBay cost £29 P+P inc. from this new place it works out at £19.16. there is a good and bad side to this. good...... buy the looks of things they only charge £14.50 P+P on what ever you buy........ i put one item in the shopping basket and went through the process. at the end it charged me £14.50 P+P. i then canceled the order and did it again, but with 8 items and still at the end was charged £14.50 P+P. the more you buy the cheaper it is. bad side....... on curtain sizes you can only get a min of 2000mm in length. they seem to only stock 6082T6 so to round up, i ordered the following. 1" 5/8 x 2000mm 16mm x 2000mm 20mm x 2000mm 30mm x 2000mm bill came in to just over 90 quid to my door. personally i think that's a lot of ali for 90 quid. or do you guys know some were cheaper?
