Do not purchase material from ONLINE METALS. Their will-call is at 3001 Alouette Dr #100, Grand Prairie, TX 75052.
I purchased 0.500 dia 303 s.s. solid bar stock from them.
A couple of weeks ago I machined several parts from this material on the Clausing.
Last night, I started to machine more parts and assemble the various components. As I started to assemble, parts were for some reason not fitting together! I noticed a burr on 1 part that looked strange. As I started to clean up this burr, the material started to peel back as 1 continuous chip. Would you know that the material was hollow…looks like it was drilled then capped over and/or joined to another piece of stock?
This is not the first time I have questioned the accuracy of my purchases from them.
