Where do you all order your brass flat stock from for building finger guards?

In your case I would order it from Pops supply over in Georgia. Good prices and his shipping is always the best.

Pritty much all the supply sites have it, I have melted my own brass bars a ton of times and have used everything from brass pipe fittings to brass welding rod and all sorts of random brass stuff I have found

Justin I pretty much just check who has the best prices most of the time and inexpensive shipping. For some supplies I use Jantz supply. In OK. Beware of very good price and very high shipping. Some suppliers of especially metals are like that, these two are not. Jantz has some exotics handle materials too like zebra bone or Eland horn.

Near where you live you would be hard pressed to find cheaper than Sheffield knifemakers supply in Orange City Fl. as well.
http://www.sheffieldsupply.com/SUPPLYCAT.pdf They do not have online shopping, you have to call them the link is to their catalog. They use the USPS which is the cheapest for shipping for smaller stuff.

Also for sanding belts you can't beat TruGrit.com Justin. They sell some brass under steels as well.
