To the editor: I’ve had several customers bring me old sheet metal to see if I can identify it so they can match and repair their structures without having to replace the whole thing. Sometimes I cannot match their profile with the five of six usual suppliers. Is there a publication somewhere that would show all the profiles made by various companies? If you know of one, would you let me know, please?
