Anyone know where to buy titanium metal?



Hey guys I need a smaller piece of titanium about the size of a piece of paper at biggest by a 1/4" thick... I've called around to many metal stores and can't find it, I need this to make exhaust hangers for my titanium exhaust as the current hangers cracked off since there not made from titanium... Thanks!

They'll ship to residential as well. I used them to fix my pivot points on my e36 windscreen.

They're fine with commercial accounts (they are one of our suppliers), but not residential. (I ended up purchasing the parts through my workplace in the end.)

We used to buy from Pinnacle Metals in Mississauga, but they were bought out by Tri Star Metals, they might still exist though (ph# 905-795-2882). There's also http://www.smpmetal.com/ (ph# 905-568-4459),also in Mississauga.

South of the border, other than McMaster Carr, try http://www.edfagan.com/
