Anyone know where I could find a supplier to buy some aluminum from to build a frame? Also I know I want 3" wide material but I don't know what to ask or look for? Do I ask for square tubing or what is the aluminum called that you build a frame out of? Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you.

I've seen Bosch Rexroth used in some builds. It looks like it has worked really well. Can't help with a supplier.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

Thank you much MM for the link. After looking at this length and reading a few of the posts here I much admit that I am lost on what material to use to build and inexpensive, yet strong 124" x 74" frame. I did not see any 11' long pieces from 80/20 for my top and bottom pieces?

Thank you.

What....you again? wink.gif

They offer "Splines" that insert between two pieces to join them. That's how it's done.

BTW, building a Frame from such Aluminum components isn't and never has been considered "inexpensive", just preferable to some over the use of Wood. It's not unheard of though to combine both materials.
