Where Can I Get This?
« on: June 08, 2006, 02:04:21 PM »
I'm looking for aluminum in blocks of various sizes, like:

7" x 2" x 1/2"

36" x 3" x 1/2"

I just need a few pieces. It doesn't have to be really high grade stuff.

Any idea where I can buy these?

marami akong nakikitang nagbebenta ng mga aluminum (along with window glasses). just keep your eyes open while driving/commuting.

meron along aurora blvd, aguila aluminum and glasses ata. meron din sa may riverbanks sa marikina. also try binondo alam ko marami dun.

try asking around those who make glass enclosures. they use aluminum for the frames.

if you're looking for solid aluminum blocks... try caloocan...
and look for cracked aluminum engine blocks/cylinder heads...

you can also try junk shops, mas mahal nga lang since they sell it by weight...

thanks for the tips guys.

I'm looking for solid blocks. the window and glass shops often sell only tubes or aluminum precast for frames.

Try T. Alonzo street (downtown Manila). You may have to have them machined to size.

Aluminum blocks??  Do you mean as in solid billets of aluminum?

Kasi we have aluminum rods or angle bars but not that big sizes. The hardware shops in T.Alonzo St. (near Arranque market / Recto Ave.) may have those big aluminum rods or aluminum square bars.

Just wondering, what do you need it for? Heat sinks? Kasi if heat sink, I think there are aluminum blocks that are shaped as heat sinks.
