Visit this supplier for a great selection of brass stock. They have both formed (rounded edges) and extruded (square edges) U profiles. Plan ahead they do have a $20 minimum order amount.

Oh, oh. I know what you mean Mike. I may have to read it, try out what it says, reread, try again, reread it and maybe I will get it eventually. That's the way it usually goes for me. Maybe I'm not alone.

Just a follow-up to my last post on this subject. I did get the book. It has a lot of nice photos, but if you are looking for a 'how to' book then you will find this one to be a big disappointment. It is nevertheless a fun read a nice addition to any model library.

A lot of this stuff mentioned also applies to both Copper and Aluminium (Australian Spelling) Both will work harden with repeated bending. Copper does require annealing for it to be made soft, I suppose Al does as well. personally I have not done this.

I'd have to agree with you Mike. Nice for the coffee table but that's about it. I needed (and still do) more basics. Sadly, I still haven't found it.
