diamond plate

clearly my searching skills suck. Looking for 2 sheets of 4x4x.063 diamond plate.

Metals Depot has it for $75/sheet

When I search Mcmaster they are twice the price?

Yeah, what are you going to do with it, wrap your kids sandwiches for lunch?

I'm gonna wrap my own sangweeches. Trailer floor. But it might not be worth it on a HF trailer. Just trying to lighten it up a bit.

derick, 1/16 diamond plate will be worthless for a floor

do with expanded steel like i did, its actually lighter than a useful thickness of aluminum diamond plate, holds up well is nonslip when wet or oily and is pretty weather safe cause water cannot collect on it

Thanks Jason. That was my other thought. Might look into a bit more

It also works well opening beer bottles. Just don't let Jason catch you doing it.
