    I'd like to use something light and rigid for my next screen.
    Anyone know where to source fairly long sections of aluminium which can be rivetted together?
    Google search wasn't very useful.

    thanks

    CKA.

    They sell a vast array of aluminium framing - for use in picture framing but suitable for your use. Very high quality at great prices. They will custom cut the moulding lengths and also sell a kit for putting it together.

    Only problem is you need to say you're in the trade ;). No proof required though. Give them a phone and order their catalogue - it details everything :).

    Just say you're a photographer if they ask ;).

    The catalogue costs about £11 though it is worth it.

    You don't have one you want to get rid of do you?
