Thread: Anyone have source for Flat Copper Strip for Jackets ?

  1. #1

    Anyone have source for Flat Copper Strip for Jackets ?

    Always used Corbin's with no complaints in quality but was wondering what others used . I can't handle or would never use the heavier rolls of 50-100 lbs for manual jacket making , So I lose some of the economy of larger purchases, but probably might used 20 lbs at a time or so just to have on hand if I decided to make some ....
    If you have a source please post or PM me .
    I'm looking for 1.25 x .30 thick in flat strips .
    Thought about looking on ebay ?
    I'm interested if anyone has purchased pure copper in the smaller rolls and cut it into strips from one of the fellows selling it on there and how it worked out as I understand from reading "Guiding Metal" is not pure copper but wondered if It would work , from 1st hand experience or would it be too sticky and end up busting out or stuck to the punch ?
    So thought I would ask the other with more experience on here ?

    lol. censorship is never a good idea, they can't help but to add words beyond the traditionally acceptable list. Such is the nature of the cancer of thought police. Some just can't get enough at work, and have to be moderators too. As to whether thats true here, I really don't know, but I've seen it with regularity in the past.

    Just for your information, Guns N Glory, that word wasn't censored by the system software, or any of the moderators. It was done by the OP, and when I asked him to fix it, he said he didn't know how, so I fixed it for him.

    You've only been here for a short period of time, so maybe you're not aware of how we work, but keeping this site family friendly is our goal. At any time, there are almost as many unregistered visitors to the site as there are registered members, so keeping it clean is for everyone. In this case, the OP's intentions differed with the goal of the site, and it's fixed.

    Hope this helps.
