    Where can I buy a sheet of copper ??

    Daughter needs a sheet of copper to manufacture a container for a Uni project she's doing - but having tried everywhere we can think of (from plumbers, builders, scrap yards to craft shops etc) we have discovered that no-one seems to stock the blasted stuff :-(. Does anyone have any ideas please, as the project is due in next week, and the only other solution of fleabay may mean it doesnt turn up in time and may not be suitable when it does) ?

    It doesnt need to be a new piece - secondhand sheets would be just as good as will be thumped hard with a blunt instrument :-) (to mould it of course lol !)

    Swansea area or North Wales preferable - or anywhere else that I could persuade to post very quickly :-) !! Thanks :-)

    not difficult to find all depends what dimensions you need.....bearing in mind copper isnt a cheap metal
