    Aircraft home builders use 4130. Try Aircraft Spruce.

    Hello Dark Knight,
    Another good source of aircraft materials such as 4130 cms is:
    Wicks Aircraft Supply
    They are located near Saint Louis, MO.

    Another plug for Aircraft Spruce! I've ordered from them for years.

    You can also try Speedy Metals but their shipping is a bit high.
