    I'm looking for a 3'x3' (or thereabouts) piece of 0.010 stainless to use on the belly of an aircraft.

    Any supplier suggestions? Aircraft Spruce doesn't carry it that thin, and the places which do apparently only sell it in small pieces.

    Sometimes you can find surplus sheets like that on ebay. I found a piece of titanium for a firewall on ebay. Easy enough to look.

    I have some 12" wide x .010" s.s. Shim stock. Came on a 50" roll. Can't imagine trying to make a panel of that size without it getting bent and creased.
