Other than a junkyard, does anyone have any idea where to source a .050″ cold-rolled steel bed plate to obtain type height on a galley-height press? Thanks for any assistance.

  1. Hey there.

    I just got a huge sheet of cold-rolled 18 gauge steel from the Metal Supermarket. It’s 0.050″ and only cost 20 bucks for a sheet large enough for my 320G! Woo!

    good luck

  2. Mike is right, a sheet-metal fabricator should be able to help you out.

    I have gone with an 18 gage stainless steel plate with great success. It’s not exactly .050″, but it’s really really really close (.048), and stainless is higher quality than cold-rolled steel.
