Those are extruded sections, cut and drilled/tapped to requirements. The extrusions are available from aluminium suppliers, like Aluminium City, Extrusion World and Non-Ferrous Metals should have them. Any engineering shop should be able to make the parts for you. Also looks like it can be made DIY with a hack saw, drill and tap.

Where are you situated, boet?

Thanks!

I'm in the kenwyn/ottery area, there are many engineering shops around, but first I need the plate and metal bending service, I cannot turn on my amplifier without mounting it down to a plate, and I need it desperately I'm even happy to pay a few rands more, just to get done this completed project has been tucked away for almost 2 years and never progressed as a result of metal work.

I have a dremel 4000 tool for the cutting if it comes to that.  :flame:

Like Shonver said. The aluminium in your image does not need to be fabricated, bend etc. It is stock standard stuff (extruded angle aluminium). You can possibly even buy it from builders warehouse. All that needs to be done is to cut and drill it.

try NFM, 021 551 0286, they sell offcuts, then you don't need to buy 6 meter lengths  :thumbs:
