    Theres a place near me that gets some scrap in sometimes. I picked up a 4ft piece a few months ago. He does not get it often. but I will check and see if he has anymore tomorrow.
    What length would you have to have?

    Hey Jim, check with Lowe's. I stumbled onto it the other day. They have a good selection of tubing, round or square. They have flat strips, sheets, angle, expanded metal, and it comes in aluminum or steel. I was in hog heaven.

    thanks for all the advice. i called a local alluminum shop and they wanted $270 for 2 pieces at 15 inches and 2 pieces at 20 inches. i very politely told the lady for another $75 i could buy a jack plate, and not have all the work involved in building one.
