The general material of choice here is Bundy Tube, which is used to make brake lines on cars. Its pretty easy to come by from places like Pertek, ABS Brakes etc and costs about $6 per meter. From there the next best option is Stainless tube, this can come in lots of grades costing anywhere from about $4 a meter to 12+ some specialty tube places will carry it as well as stainless balistrading and handrail suppliers. 3.75mm or 3/16th of an inch tubing is what you will most likely want.Hi Guys,
Just looking for opinions on types of metals to produce a scaled chassis and roll cage. I was thinking copper for its ease of soldering as a form of joining but it could be too ductile for a rigid body. Any advice?
