Meet Online Metals Answered

We met all sorts of interesting people at the Austin Maker Faire!

The Online Metals booth was just across the way, so we stopped by to inspect their wares.

They've got a great array of metals and plastics that should prove useful for all sorts of projects, and since it's all available online should make life easier for those of you who don't live right next door to a supplier. They cut everything to size, are willing to handle small orders, and even have a useful blog.

Good stuff, and friendly people.
We're thinking of running a contest together in the spring, so keep your eyes peeled.

Check out their new offer for Canadian customers! Nice! It's good to see a US company that actually cares.
