How much & where?

Does anyone know where I can buy 4X8 sheets of diamond plating. Was also wondering how expensive it is? I called Home depot and Menards here in Joliet but they don't carry it.

I know the Ace by my house carries it, and I have seen it in other aces as well. Not sure on price.

Ace carries very small sheets (2x2 max I believe). If you need a full 4x8 sheet I use Metals Express in Addison or Bedford Park. It's pricey!

A 4x8 sheet of aluminium 1/4 " thick can cost as much as $400+ dollars. 1/8 " about $200+. This stuff can get expensive. If you find a better price, please let me know. I'm looking also.
