    I'm interested in using the 10mm makerbeam system but can't find any retailers in australia. The best i have found so far is from a site called ubuy that ships from the US but has AUD prices.

    So I have 2 basic questions:

    1. Which are the best online stores I can buy makerbeam products/extrusions? Shipped to australia.

    2. What 10mm alternatives are there?

    I use taobao so i'm going to see what I can find there but I would prefer finding local stores first.

    I've done very little work with alu. What would be the most efficient or recommended way to cut 10mm extrusions? I dont want to use a hacksaw for obvious reasons.

    Thanks.

    A mitre saw with an aluminium cutting blade will give you a nice clean cut, high tooth count wood working blades will also give a clean cut.
