    Could get you some for a decent price, but fast, heavy and international post do NOT make well for 'easy on the wallet' postal costs.

    Are there no local metal suppliers in the Netherlands you can drive to?

    p.s. Make sure you get 6082 or similar alloy; will cut, drill and tap well. Watch out for some sheet/shate dealers; check the alloy. You may get something akin to chewing gum; at least when you start drilling into it...

    its impossible to get aluminium close to me.
    there is a webshop that could sell it to me for 45 euro in total but cant make the delivery in time.

    and everyone who lives close to me....no go. i called 6 dealers in metal stuff...they all had no aluminium of 0,8cm, 0,9cm or 1cm.

    and drive over there to pick it up is cheaper and faster than having them send it by postal service.
