Terrific quality and delivery
Bought various lengths and I was both surprised and pleased when they arrived the following morning. The quality of the rods was among the best I have ever used and this has been by far the best experience with a metal supplier so far.
I play the drums in a band and we tour around the local clubs a lot. Anyway the stand on my kit was getting a bit rusty and used which is not the look I was really going for. I looked online and saw the scale of the products these guys supply, I sent them an email and they got back to me with a quote within the hour, four days later I had all my lengths replaced on my drum kit and can confidently say it looks better than ever. Thanks guys!
Helped a lot
I'm forever doing little DIY jobs around the house and always finding things that could do with improving, this time it was the inside of the shelves in the kitchen, I needed a small piece to go across the length of this and make sure it keeps all of the plates in stock, have to say this did the job brilliantly and now I have seen the quality they supply I will certainly be buying from here again in the future
Used on plants
Bought some bits of this to help my plants grow straight. Works well and the look compliments the plants.
used on my boat!
really happy boat looks great!
I am working on a prototype project i needed to machine the 7/8" down to around 21.5mm and then weld them together. Naturally i wanted to use 303 for the machining but Metals4u said i should avoid welding 303 if i could. I looked into this and they were right so the machining part was harder but the welding was much more straightforward. Thanks for the info.
303 = machining grade!
I needed some 7mm Stainless round bar for a job and after looking everywhere the best advice was to get a large diameter and machine it down. Metals4u informed me that 303 has a bit of lead in and so is the best for turning. I got 8mm and it worked a treat.
Fun holiday project
I used some of the 5mm round bar to make a wind chime with my daughter. Nice material and we had great fun making it.
Nothing short of brilliant.
Used on my stair case banister and have no complaints. Their polishing kit is also worth every penny!
Good to see a company have both imperial and metric sizes available.
Bought some 316 grade for an outdoor pull up bar. The corrosion resistance is brilliant.
I required some stainless rods to fix my gate which is near the coastal environment. I was unsure what 303 304 and 316 meant until I spoke to the Metals4u team. They advised me that 316 was the marine grade which I required.
Thanks for the help it looks fab
Fitted this on to my boat, looks great and will last me a very long time.
Had no idea what i required until i spoke to the Metals4u team who described what was what and adivsed what would be best.
They helped me effortlessly and delivered next day.
The service I received from order to delivery was fantastic.
Buzz the wire game
I'm making a buzz the wire game and need approx 3 metres of a wire that will conduct electricity and that I can bend into shape but will hold its shape well and not 'wobble' too much! I would prefer something silver/grey coloured. I have tried copper brake pipe but its a bit too flexible and wobbly! Would the 3mm stainless steel do the trick or any other suggestions? Many thanks
Stainless steel for garden use
I'm looking for round stainless steel 6 mm and 9 mm diameter for use in the garden, so which grade gives the best protection against the weather ? Many thanks for your time, Martin.
Use grade 316.
Some shopping centres etc had their glass fittings made cheap from 303/304. You will spot these a mile away. They are pitted.
316 is used in the marine industry as it last very well. Polishes brilliantly.
For best result give a wipe once a year with a lightly oiled rag.
