Need aluminum for a project in a rush?

Home Depot, Rona and Canadian Tire store do carry some stock for emergency use. Caution, they are not cheap.

Generally speaking, they are not bare stock for milling purposes. All aluminum material are already anodized in good finish. The sticker indicates material are imported by H. Paulin & Company Limited and stock originated from China and Taiwan.

The material comes in Square and Round Rods, Square and Round Tubing, Angles and Flats with a plethora of different sizes to choose from. We took some pictures from a recent trip to Home Depot, now complied a quick reference table for your aluminum project needs.

Hope this helps.

P.S. As you can see from the picture, they carry pretty much same selection for steel but limited for brass.
