Default Aluminum bars in KC?

I'm looking to get some 1/2"x3/4"x24" (or 30") aluminum bars locally if I can. I'm looking to make a table saw sled with em so they need to be perfectly straight but otherwise I'll drill my own holes, etc.

I've found em online but I'd rather get em local if I can get anywhere near the price.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
(wasn't quite sure where to put the thread so move if necessary)

You'll pay a pretty penny at one of those metal by the foot places

Metal by the foot also has their inventory online so you can get a pretty close idea of the cost (minus cutting charge I believe). I work in that industry and that is who I use when when we need small amounts of metal.

McMaster Carr is the go to when it is an odd ball or something that MBTF doesn't carry. They are a little more expensive and you have to pay to UPS it, but still decent for small amounts.

If "perfectly straight" is the criteria though, you may ask to see it first. Getting metal from mills, service centers, etc., leaves something to be desired for straightness (usually). Most will tell you to get a bar machined to size if it is so critical.

If they don't have it, you could call t w steel. if it's an odd ball size Kastle Grinding should be able to make it for you.
