stainless plate

I need to add a stainless plate where my chain is rubbing on my teak bow pulpit. Anybody have good sources for cheap, but good quality, stainless bar stock? It will need to be finished on the edges.
I have some flexability on dimensions

Xort-

There's a place that not only sells the material but will machine it to your specifications at a fairly reasonable price. Might be easier than trying to make something up yourself. Try HERE.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

XORT

IF you feel comfortable with doing the work yourself, you might check local scrap yards ... mine sells stainless, for $1.75/lb regardless of type ... I visit regularly, pick through the stock, and purchase what I need or might need.

Plain flat bar stock will suffice, all that will need to be done is finish the two cut ends. Not sure what finishing stainless entails, I don't have metal working tools.

Cool

This is one of my sources for metal. www.metalsupermarkets.com
They usually have everything in stock at pretty reasonable prices and they have several locations around the country.

Good Luck

I'd ask local scrap yards or stainless welding shops first, since what they want for a piece of bar stock scrap may be less than the SHIPPING cost of mail ordering it.

A fast web search will find many reasonable web vendors--but shipping and handling can't be avoided.

onlinemetals.com look for them on Amazon.com too. I have had good experiences with them, and they answer the phone! Very nice to deal with.

If you are willing to put some sweat into it, a scrap yard is your cheapest source. Take a magnet with you! once you find and purchase a small piece of scrap you can cut it and/or finish it with a Dremel tool. A dremel tool is one of the most versatile tools on a boat for small jobs; I won't leave home without it!

I used a piece of Starboard - easier to cup and shape and nowhere near as hot underfoot.
