    I have a couple pieces of perforated aluminum that I want to get rid of but I am not sure how much to sell it for. Any suggestions? The aluminum is .080" thick and the holes are 3/16" diameter. It's the leftover from my thin lip satoshi.

    The first piece is 6 1/2" x 7"

    The second piece is a weird size so I added the dimensions to the photo

    Here is the finished product of my grill for reference on the size of the holes

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    How much did you pay for the entire sheet and what were the original sheet dimensions?

    Nicely done BTW

    That's the thing. I have no idea. I had it for a while and it was just sitting around. I didn't even remember that I had it until I found out about the thin lip satoshi. The original sheet was 4'-0"X8'-0". When I remembered about it, it was at 2'-0"x4'-0" and what's shown is what's left after doing the grill. There is plenty left to do another grill.

    Thank you

    Depending on the alloy, the price is any where from $300 to $400 a sheet. That's $0.06 to $0.08 a square inch. Using the high side, the small piece is
    about $4 (rounded up from $3.60) and the large piece is about $60 (rounded up for $55.80)

    Thank you for that. I was initially thinking $50 for both but $40 sounds about right after what you said.
