    Where in Melbourne can I buy some copper sheet? I don't need it immediately but will need a few small pieces of 0.6mm-1mm copper sheet to replace thermal pads soon.

    Any suggestions welcome. :)

    Thanks

    Sheet metal workshops.

    Don't expect it to be cheap either!
    I believe i picked up 10cm x 60cm of 1mm for... $20-$30 a while back.

    Hobby shops - ask if they have a K&S Metal Stand - that is a brand that sells very thin copper and brass sheets about the size of a paperback book cover.

    How 'bout other sheets - stainless, ally, mild steel and zinc'd ?

    Do you offer laser or water jet cutting?

    specialise in copper and brass, i can organise water jetting, would prefer the templates are supplied in CAD though, or i can draw them up if the dimensions are provided

    not that this comes up very often but a contact has access to a new lazer cutter for anyone interested in specific shapes/thicknesses in copper now

    drops the cutting costs down to a fraction compared to waterjet

    Hey man, now that the forum exists, you may like to have this moved over to Hobby Engineering, it's sure to garner more interest there.

    Cheers. :thumbup:

    I know Ullrich Aluminium do copper sheet (all kinds of sheet). Not sure if they do hobbyist quantities, they are national.
