Where to buy non-ferrous metals

Recommended Posts

I recently had some fun making some quarter/50 cent mokume gane, and want to try making some with sheet metal.

Does anyone know of a good place to buy copper/brass/nickel/silver sheets? Everywhere I look seems to charge ridiculous prices over the value of the metal.

 

Thanks.

Did you check out the big box stores?

They some times have brass and copper in the isles with the doors disguised as kick plates for the bottom of doors.

Check them with a magnet; many if not most of the modern brass kick plates are plated steel; now if you can find the old ones...

I can find the metals online, but at prices that are unreasonable, especially the nickle and silver. Copper I have found a local fabricating shop that has them at reasonable prices.
