  I measured the aluminum flashing I bought for the absorber fins and it
comes in at .01". Thinner than I need.

   I remember someone here had a source for aluminum (that required a
request). Does anyone know a good place to buy aluminum? I'm stuck until
I can get by that...

Jeff...

It would be helpful to know exactly what you're looking for (alloy,
temper, size, thickness, finish/coating, and quantity).
