Aluminum Cost Estimate
George over at Industrial Metal Supply in Riverside will cut us a deal on 16 gauge (which is 1/16" thick) 4 x 8 aluminum sheets. I calc'd that we need 25 sheets. Michael Fox estimates we can get about 32 triangles per sheet, so I overestimated as some of the triangles are much larger/smaller. I counted the triangles and there are roughly 773, so I rounded up to 800. 800/32=25. IMS sells aluminum by the pound, we are at 711 lbs, at $1.60 a pound the total is $1137.60, there may be an additional discount. In stock & they deliver!
