Default Gunmetal Plate - UK Source

Hi,

I'm trying to obtain some gunmetal plate or sheet between 4 and 6 mm thick. It would need to be TT size (500 x 400mm). Anyone know of a UK source?

Thanks,

Do you mean brass? Bronze?

Gunmetal is but an old name (think Napoleon era) for one type of bronze.
Cannons were cast out of it.

This Company can supply full sized sheets of it, they certainly can suggest some shop with industrial shears which can cut a piece for you, on your specs.
