Aluminum Pan Source

Topic Type: 
Question

I have had the darndedest time finding a flat sided aluminum pan of approximate dimensions 12" by 8" by 6". Any sources out there for a similar sized pan. Nothing offered on Amazon, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, etc. that I could find.

You may need them custom built. People that modify race car engines build their own oil pans from aluminum. What will you use them for? How about a wood box lined with HD aluminum foil?

I actually found this one at the junk yard. I was considering using a stainless sink and then I happened on this guy in the aluminum dumpster. A quick assessment of whether I could get out once I jumped in then I went and grabbed it :).

Stainless sinks are more available (though probably more expensive at scrap prices).
