    Default supplier for bronze angle?

    I am finding bronze rod, flat, sheet, etc, but no angles. looking for bronze angle, 3/16 - 1/4" thick, 2-3" on a side. Prefer alloy 655, hard.

    Please advise,
    Ken

    Alternatively take a piece of mild steel angle to a foundry and ask if they could cast it in bronze , ask the maximum length too.

    you can only buy "architectural bronze" angle. The last time I needed silicon bronze angle, I took a piece of aluminum angle and sand casted it.

    I am doing the same thing right now for a pattern for a bronze deck hatch with aluminum diamond plate. it will give me bronze diamond plate.

    This is alloy 385, does anyone know how it gets along with alloy 655, (or not) ? Alternately, who has experience welding or Brazing #655? I have a wire feed welder, can a barely adequate welder such as myself make this happen with the right gas and wire?
