Does lowes or home depot have sheet brass pieces, other than the really expensive kick plates for doors.

Both Lowes and Home Depot have websites and a way of verifying the inventory at the stores nearest you.

I just ordered some hammered brass sheet yesterday from here – it has already shipped. I talked directly to them since it had to be custom cut. Nice folks.

I usually find a better selection of nails, screws, and metal pieces at Orchard Supply Hardware. But lately they seem to be distancing themselves from Sears/Craftsman and bringing in even lower quality tools. The quality of random hardware appears to be slipping also.

Of course there are plenty of online places that sell nothing but metal. and are a few that I have used that have prices posted. Google would find many more.

You could also try McMaster Carr. They have a good selection of all different types of brass.

If you want to stick to the HD or Lowes type of stores, then the best selection is at Sears Hardware stores. If you want a real selection of numerous types of metals, try a place like online metals.

What size/thickness are you looking for?

Check out a hobby shop that specializes in RC cars/airplanes or Model Railroads if you are looking for smaller thiner sheets.
