EN14A Bar

Does anyone have a cheap source of EN14A bar?
I need about a 10" length 4"diameter (or two 5" lengths) to turn my upright centres from.
If not I will need to buy some at full price :(

I use a company called Metalsupermarkets. They have depots all over the country and will cut to size to suit your requirements.

Also on Ebay there is a company called Ringwood Precision Engineering who will supply in small quantities.

Good Luck

Hi All,
The manufacturers of EN14A steel bar have decided not to produce any bars less than 2inch diameter.
That is a bit of a bugger if you only want to make small bushes about 3/4" diameter.
I could realy do with buying a length of the old stock 3/4" or 1" bar if anyone knows where there is any lying about.
I will be looking into alternatives but EN14A welds realy nicely.

Hi Ian,
I worked it out today.
The manufacturers of bar they just call EN14A make it as black bar 2 inches diameter and upwards.
150M19 is basically the same stuff but comes as bright bar of smaller diameters.
A 3m length of 1" diameter is about £30 from Winged Aviation who I have used before as they can supply small quantities and can cut into lengths without grumbling too much.
That will be much better than chewing away at 2 inch bar for hours.
