Looking for 6mm aluminum rods

I was told @Mrholthaus might know where I could buy some locally but if anyone else has any good ideas I am all ears. I could buy on Amazon but I’d rather not wait

That’s probably going to be an oddball size to get. Closest you might get is 1/4 which is only about .014” larger (0.01377952755905 real number larger)

I need smaller or exact as it is a rod that fits in an existing hole.

Maybe welding rods?

Nvmd. Tim is right that’s a really weird size

MIght you be able to use some fine-grit sandpaper/emery cloth/whatever and “sand-to-fit”? Not sure about how much ft-length of rod is involved or tolerances involved (seemed like you had wiggle room from comment), but maybe it’s a solution if 6mm is too hard or expensive to locate?

Maybe drill rod?

How close is the fit? Could you machine an end & use it that way?

How about this?


Maybe this? They are in Carrolton near DMS

Wait, REV robotics is here? Do they have an actual store? That’s sweet

They don’t have an actual storefront, but their corporate offices are here and I believe most of their products ship from their warehouse here. They do allow will-call pickups for people who order locally. You can’t select that as an option anymore (removed during the pandemic), but you can put a note in the order and they are good at seeing that and removing the shipping once you pick up.

REV is in Carrollton, we don’t have a store front and have not re-enabled local pickup yet. If you are urgent on something order it online and then call us and we will see what we can do


Yeah as I said I can always get it off amazon but I was trying to find something local
