    I'm in Adelaide. Planning a new build. Need two sheets or plates of aluminium, probably a little larger than a standard ATX board. Prefer thickness of 5-8mm.

    Can anyone tell me where to buy some?

    Try Dickson Glass and Aluminium in Lonsdale if you're down south.

    I'm up north (Playford) but will give them a try if I can't find anyone else.

    Thanks. :)

    Call engineering places that deal with CNC and laser cutting, they always have a ridiculous amount of cutoffs.

    Bunnings. It'll be right down the back somewhere.

    Tried Bunnings in Marion yesterday (was down there on business) but no joy.

    Thanks for the other suggestions guys. :)
