Material suppliers list - a definitive guide
« on: June 18, 2010, 02:38:58 AM »
I have an idea:

Create a document attached to this thread that is constantly updated with a list of material suppliers - if anyone wants to buy something e.g magnets, cores etc they can refer to this list instead of trolling through lots of different threads.

Sound like a plan?  ;D

I would be happy to maintain such a list if people can post information about suppliers here. I'm thinking of having a table of product types and suppliers, URLs, Contacts, notes about them, recommendations etc.

Apologies if such an idea has already been done - I can't find it.

For some reasons I cannot modify my original post, otherwise I would put it there.

Keep up the good work, you may find that there are some websites which supply an enormity of items.

Digikey.com for electrical and related.
MSCdirect.com for materials, tooling, etc.

Both of these will send you a free catalog, and both catalogs are foot-smashing huge.

anyone know of any suppliers for Mumetal or permalloy that is not just super thin sheets?

I am working on a project that could greatly benefit from this, but all I have found are those sheets for shielding audio components. no where near thick enough,

From what I am seeing the backing plates to the magnets in hard drives are permalloy, so I may try using a massive fresnel lens I have to melt it. if I can I will maybe make a howto video on the process including how to make molds to drop the molten metal into for your designs.

but a good supplier of say .01 to .063 thick sheets that we can cut and form ourselves would be super helpful for sure I would guess.
