I want to use a 3" wide piece of Aluminum
flat bar to install a Maretron WSO100
on my masthead. The reason for the 3" width is it would allow me to drill through and use the WSO100's three screws for attaching to the bar and it won't impinge on the humidity sensor which sticks out slightly from the bottom.
Are any of these grades available at Online Metals
- 2024-T351 ALUMINUM RECTANGLE BAR
- 2024-T4 ALUMINUM RECTANGLE BAR
- 6061-T6 ALUMINUM RECTANGLE BAR
- 7075-T6/T651 COLD FINISH ALUMINUM RECTANGLE BAR
In terms of thickness, what is available differs by the type of Aluminum. I have a piece of 2' piece of 1/4"x2" here that seems stout enough, it's just not wide enough to get good purchase
on the WSO100 so I'm planning on going with 1/4" or 3/8" depending on the material. If anyone feels strongly about the thickness please chime in on that as well.
