Trying to make struts for an Emerson. 3/32 thick x 3/8"
Standard bar is 1/8 thick


At this stage seems my only two options are 
(1) .09 thick 22 gauge brass plates cut 3/8 wide
(2) 1/8" thick bar sanded down


Both of these routes pose a challenge. Any other ideas or sources for 3/32" x 3/8" brass flat bar stock?

Tom,

I did and plan on buying a brass sheet from them when I make a custom set of blades.

They were the first site I checked for the 3/32 x 3/8 bar but 1/8 thick is as thin as bar gets.
Then considered their custom cuts on 3/32"  thick brass sheets but their cuts would be within +/- 1/8" wide and could not guaranty any 3/8" wide cuts
