I am using stainless 16 gauge with 1/4 inch holes and itstill needs edge support
Hey Walt - When you say it needs edge support, you just mean the standard table frame - 2xHFS5-2020-370 and 2xHFS5-2020-580 is needed for support? You're ok without support in the middle?
gratingpacific.com quoted me some prices that seem really expensive. onlinemetals.com was better, but still several hundred dollars. Aluminum was way cheaper - 1/8" thick x 580 mm x 410 mm aluminum sheet, cut to size is $65.
ebay seller perfplus5513 seems to have the best deal on perforated 16 ga steel. I guess I can cut it to size and have enough left over for a 2nd table surface.
