Thanks but even with that, they are too expensive in general. They also overcharge for shipping.
For example:
5052 sheet, 0.125" 12 x 12" Online Metals= $17.51 plus shipping
My favorite eBay seller = $6.25 plus lower shipping.
To me that is an outrageous markup.

Still cheaper than buying local, surprisingly.
I got turned off ebay early on, and don't go near it now.

This seller is pretty good for Al sheet. They combine shipping on multiple items usually.

I buy from him all the time. He's pretty much my go to guy for small quantities.

I dealt with Stoners a few times, through Amazon I think. They're great, and pretty much where I get all my aluminum.

Ordered a 20-lb steel protobox from OnlineMetals and this is the first time I've been disappointed in one of their grab-bags. Most of it was square or round tube, and one piece was even rusty. I usually factor the shipping in as part of the price when buying from them (and yeah, it's expensive), and my reaction to this was "Nope, I wouldn't have payed that amount for this."
