EI core laminate steel for sale
« on: March 28, 2009, 17:46:06 pm »
I have @ 80 feet of laminate steel for making the EI core needed for the Meyers Bobbins I drew up.This material was bought from a core manufacture.It is grain oriented and measures .010" thick X 39 inches wide.I will sell it by the foot at 39" wide for $5.It already has the coating on it,and can be cut out with a laser,and it doesn't hurt the coating.
I have attached pictures of my core so far.You can see the E and I, I made.You will need 75 pieces of each.They can be all made from a three foot piece if laid out and cut with a laser.Other wise it may take more if you make them by hand with sheet metal shears.I cut mine out with a guillitine paper cutter.But it takes time.
Contact me through this post or email.

I'm only offering to sell the steel.It was too expensive here to have them cut with a laser.Dankie and dudleyengineering found a place the get some made.If they can cut 1300 pieces for $150 that is a great price.My local shop wanted $1000 for 400 pieces. Buy the steel from me and have them cut it out.

The center leg is 3/4 inch wide and 3 inches long.The outside legs are 3/8 wide and 3 inches long.The window opening between the center leg and outside legs are 1 inch wide and 3 inches long.The side that all three legs are attached to is also 3/8 wide.So its 3 1/2 inches wide from outside leg to outside leg.And 3 3/8 inches long.The I's are 3/8 x 3 1/2 inches.

Grain orientation?

Don,

Would it be a correct assumption that the grain is orientated with the coating stripes?

Thanks,
Mike
