Does anyone have any extra aluminum stripping or balsa wood?


Apparently plover is a type of bird.
What I need is a piece of balsa wood, 3/8" thick and AT LEAST a 3"x5" block. I also need a 1/16" thick piece of aluminum, 3/4" wide and AT LEAST 25" long.

Anyone have anything? I'll negociate, but the highest I'll go is probably USD $20
It's for the battery cover in a portable. So yes, it's for a portable, but it's not for the case.
I know, but the book says to go with balsa wood, and since it's being covered with aluminum and plastic anyway, it's probably the cheapest solution.
