Re: [BKARTS] metal hinges

I would recommend the Metal Supermarket. It has all kinds of metal rods, all sizes and what they don't have they can get. You can buy in as small a quantity as you want. Also great source for those zinc sheets everyone was looking for a few months ago. BTW I have found using stainless steel is cheaper and doens't rust.
The hinges could probably be constructed from thin sheets available there as well.
