Now that Chicago Metallic is gone, is there a source for basic zinc came? I'd like to price 1/4" round H and a Y for the perimeter for a project I'm quoting.
Thanks - Tod

Cascade has acquired Chicago Metallic and will offer their entire catalog of profiles. I have not heard any news of when they will become available.

Cheers

Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions & information.
I guess I'd have to import a box of each style I need from Canada which might make me the high-bidder! ;- }

Or maybe I'll just use lead which I like much better. I know, "the customer is occasionally right".

I get my came through Franklin Art Glass in Columbus, they get it from Cascade. They offer wholesale accounts... The only time I have ever ordered directly from Cascade was when I needed a special order, Franklin is my best bet, being in Ohio.
