Re: Silicon bronze sheet?

Ries,

Thanks for all the details on those alloys--
I wont be welding or fabricating, but "printing" patinas on plate.

(What's the title of your alloy reference? Sounds like a great resource)

The last quote I received seemed decent except for the fact that the shipping fee, (not included in said quote) was nearly half the cost of the material, alone....Go figure.


IA,

I poked around regarding Muntz Metal, and like Ries mentioned, all of the distributors really point out its poor welding characteristics on their respective specs pages.

It's about the same now. One of the distributors accidentally sent me a quote for a full sheet @ .063 gauge for about $650 for the stock alone.
