Try Pierce aluminum in Franklin. If smaller quantities I would just go to General Supply or Metals Supermarket. There is a new one in Warwick, RI I believe.

Looking for aluminum plate pieces 1/4 to 3/8

I've picked up custom cut aluminum plate from Rose Marine in Gloucester. The last time were for 1/4 thick for pressing out my HX and AC cores.

Ebay is by far the best for small aluminum stuff, even 4+ ft pieces.
Basically a lot of fabricating and supply places sell the scraps off there, which covers 95% of what we tend to need.

The good thing about Metals Supermarket here is that they let you dig around in the scrap and off-cuts, and 1/2 the time they give you the whole piece even if you only needed 1/2 of it. Often I change my design to match what they have. It's sometimes a better idea. :)

I have found however, that if you order on-line and pick up it cost 50% more than ordering by phone.
