Anyone got any good materials/CDT contacts?
The reason for this question is that I have a thorny problem that requires proper access to materials but I have narry a clue as to where to get what I need. Does anyone have a decent Design tech lab/workshop and a member of staff that could help me identify the materials I need and more importantly where to source them?
To paraphrase I'm trying to find a mild steel that can be fashioned into a clip/holder for a container.
Thickness is about .5mm and width of between 1.5 and 3cm.. length is minimum of 20cm.
I've attached a couple of images of something similar to help but obviously it's already been manipulated and cut to a specific shape. I'm looking to do something similar.
Attempts to find what I need in B&Q, etc... are proving fruitless so I figured someone on here might have some contacts in the teaching staff or through technicians.
Any help very welcome.
