Post subject:  Bulb Extrusion

Looking for a source for bulb extrusion. Specifically what is referred to in my structural repair manual as "Alcoa K10282" it is 24ST extrusion that is 3/4" tall on the end with the bulb and 1/2" on the base. The thickness is .040. PM or reply if you have a place I can call. I need two 40" sections to replace where our C47 had a window added.

Have you tried Castle Metal Aerospace? You need to have an account to view their catalog. I cross referenced the number you provided and came up with their number of TMS 60-4739. It is what you are looking for. Try registering an account with them and then go from there. It may take a few days for them to activate an account, but definatley worth the wait if you are ever in the need of extrusions or researching extrusions. http://www.castlemetalsaerospace.com/zc ... earch.html

Is Castle metals the company that bought Tierney Metals? If so, Castle is the go to company, everyone buys from them. If the don't have the extrusion they can make it for the right price. 20 some years ago we needed about 300 feet of bulb angle, Tierney/Castle made the die and extruded what we needed.
