I'd drop the UL listed out of your drawings. Unless you are a UL shop. Nice drawings. Not to nit pic, but .060 alum ? I've never used .060 alum before.

Thanks,

Yeah, all the fabrication shops I use here are all UL Listed and I revise my drawings to suit each shop if they're not

.

The attached was just a very generic design template but we often use .060 Aluminum sheets, or .125'' or even .090'' depending

I hammered out three thousandths once.... :) Maybe it was 7075.... two thousandths difference in tolerance from 6061 or 5052.

Welcome to the Syndicate, Troy.

I use .063 all the time. I've never used .060 gauge. As far as alloy goes, we use 3003, or 5052.

3003 is the most workable alloy.

Most sign stuff is brake formed up to 90 degrees. Sometimes obtuse, but mostly just 90 bends.

I have seen both 5052, being a harder alloy with magnesium, and 6061 with magnesium and silly cone, crack at a 90 bend before.... A contributing factor may be attributed to not properly adjusting the brake for material thickness. Nonetheless, anything signage or general purpose for that matter, all alloys mentioned will work. Difference being in the paint prep and finish.

7075 sheets don't have a real use in the sign industry unless there's some weird hardness or tensile strength required. Although if you're planning on replacing structural steel with aluminum, this is a the best choice.

If you're lucky enough to get a cool 3D metal formed project of some sort, 3003 is hands down the top choice. Maybe get to play for a week laying up molds and making a resin and concrete hammer forms. Spend a few of those days banging on some 3003 with a selection of hammers. At least to me, that would be a nice break from cabinets and lettersets. Geesh, that would be a nice break from drawing signs.

Sorry to hijack your thread, Troy.

No, thank you.

The information is valuable

A few of the suppliers I use locally have always referred to it as .040'' .060'' and .090" and I kind of just got stuck on that terminology
