Metric 6061 round bar is an ideal choice for bearings or other metric-related projects. Use 6061 aluminum for applications requiring good strength-to-weight ratio with good corrosion resistance. Additionally, 6061 is easy to cold work in the annealed condition. Cutting, stamping, turning, drilling, and tapping are all accomplished with standard CNC methods. Also, 6061 aluminum is popular with machine shops who need material for fixtures or tooling. It is inexpensive, easy to find, and is rigid and strong.
