www.metalsontheweb.com

The finnish isnt tooo great either, this is what that invioce was for:
http://server6.uploadit.org/files/kbn2k3-cpunb.JPG Copper for my cpu and nb blocks.
http://server6.uploadit.org/files/kb...topandbase.JPG Top for gpu block - the silver base I had made already
http://server6.uploadit.org/files/kbn2k3-mosfet.JPG Copper for my mosfet block for nf7-s

Big peices from there tend to be old and tarnished, brasso wont help much, but the smaller peices are newer and shiny still, which shows that they sell a lot more of the smaller copper.. which isnt suprising...

Next time I will try http://www.smithsmetals.co.uk/ which I what my dad used to
use at work, its probably a lot cheaper.

I have also looked at a company aalco i think thats there name anyway, they sell copper a lot cheaper than MOTW but have huuuuuge min orders, the people here will mills should be able to take advantage of that, but I wont be cutting up 4 meters of 1/2" thick copper into little blocks with only a hacksaw and a dremmel....
