Does anyone have a good source for brass?
I'm looking for 1/2" o.d. tubing in 18" lengths
2" fender washers
Sheet brass, 16 ga. or thicker (finished size is 21/2" x 5")

Many thanks!

Not having any luck finding brass fenders, but maybe if you don't need too many you could cut them out of the flat stock as well?

Thanks Chance. The kickplate is the cheapest I've seen so far and I'll check on that tubing.
I'm in shock over the prices of metal these days. The cup spinners are saying the same thing.

Yes, the washers can be cut. I plan to rummage around the boatyards this weekend.
Maybe get lucky.

Not sure how big #24 is, but these seem to be the largest brass flats offered at this location:

And here's the longer list where I found it:

Here's another one. Not 2" though:

When I purchase these items, I just go to my local Do It Best Hardware store. They have all the items in your list.
