    Default Making a sheet metal tray

    I need to have a sheet metal tray made to go under a CNC mill to collect coolant run off. The tray would be approximately 1400 x 900 with a 30mm lip and a few bends. Anyone reccomendations on who I could approach to have this made in Sydney would be appreciated.

    Would gal steel be the most appropriate material?
    What thickness should it be?

    Thanks

    Warren,
    Any general sheet metal shop will be more than capable.
    .6mm Gal or Zinc annealed will do the job
    With tabbed corners for spot welding or riveting its probably a 3/4 hr job and worth in the $50 to $70 range .

    If you wanted the corners welded count on a bit more as tig welding bumps up the cost.
