    Does anyone in/around Hamilton have any U channel lying around?
    I need about 2 metres with an inside width of ~120mm.
    I’m also after a similiar amount of angle iron, Name your price

    Required to make some front wheel chocks to carry the bikes on our new toy hauler.

    I just used some ‘L’ aluminium from bunnings & bolted it together to form the U where the tyres fit.

    mm, Didn’t know Bunnings had that. I might have to have a look. Do you recall what it cost per metre/length?

    I need to make 2 stands I can bolt on and remove.

    It was comparatively expensive, but convenient…was a while ago, so pricing will have changed.

    Cheaper to look for steel suppliers in the phone book. They will usually cut out to the lengths you want as well.
