 More about Reclaimed , Recycled & Vintage metal:
 These new 'seconds' are roll ends, cut offs and older vintage metals that are too good to scrap. We have rescued (reclaimed) them from reprocessing.
These metals are unused. They are ideal for collage art & craft.
We use this metal for most of our creations. It is not only less expensive but also has character from age.
RECLAIMED: Most of the metal we sell on this page is reclaimed. Reclaimed is better for the environment because it is being used in its original state rather than being reprocessed.
Recycled : Reprocessed metal is also known as recycled. It is metal that is re-melted and re-formed in to a usable form in an energy intensive process. It does save energy over mining and processing virgin metal. Currently these are only produced in small batches. Because the recycled content varies from metal to metal and lot to lot so much it is impossible to know the percentage of recycled content of any specific piece. Many of our "new" metals on our web site have some recycled content. Most of the copper in America is 60% recycled.
Vintage Metal: Metal that has wear and patina from age.
This unused new and older metal has scratches, finger prints, ripples and/or dents
It is all very usable at a good price. We use this metal in our own creations.
      Some of this raw metal can be polished. All can be further aged with chemicals.
They are not pre- patinated. More about Patina
Bulk Metal :   Our cut to length bulk metals for the crafts person provides what is needed at a good value. Our cuts are generously long & approximately square. Metal by the running foot or yard is shipped in one length whenever possible. We use this metal to craft our own creations.
Most sheet metal is shipped in a roll if over 1x1 square foot. If necessary ripples or curves can be flattened by rolling it with a smooth rolling pin or plastic pipe section on a completely smooth surface such as a countertop, smooth wood or heavy glass table. It also can be rolled slightly the other way to flatten.
Grades:  These solid metals are of an especially pure high grade for fine craft work. All of It is solderable except aluminum..
Gauges or Thickness: The lower the gauge number the thicker the metal. For example 23 gauge sheet metal is more than twice as thick as 30 gauge. See below for gauge charts.
Hardness: Basically how easy it is to bend or work:
             Medium Soft is pliable yet holds up for folding and hammering. Thicker metal bends less easily than thin.
             Medium Hard is stiff, bends less easily and holds is shape better in larger pieces
New Craft Metal has a bright rolled satin finish. It may have some very slight manufacturing ripples, scratches & color variations.  See our other pages for these metals 
FINISH: Our raw/bare metals can be buffed up after a piece is completed.  More information on METAL CRAFT HOW-TO : Cleaning, cutting, forming, soldering & finishing
PATINA: All the metals we offer are raw with no wax or varnish and will gain an aged patina over time. Patina solutions (available at most hardware stores) can be used to speed the aging process. More about Patina
CAUTION: Raw craft metal may have sharp edges. Not for use by children. Some people have sensitivity or allergies with skin contact with metals.It is not advised to use base metals, especially Nickel Alloys,for items for children that contact skin like jewelry, especially pierced earrings.
