Availability of small brass sections

Postby John Bateson » Tue Oct 02, 2018 9:09 am

I have a need for some small brass sections and they seem to have disappeared from view.
I have searched as many of the usual places I have bought these from in the past but have come up blank.

These are
'T' section 0.8 mm x 0.8 mm
'L' section 0.8 mm x 0.8 mm

These sections act as the braces on cab roofs after suitable annealing.

Although I can get these at 1.0 x 1.0 via an eBay source surely these must be available from 'somewhere' or should I blame Brexit 8-).

Anybody got any ideas?
