Hey guys, I'm looking for ingots of an alloy similar to PA model metal, or honestly pewter ingots. Is there a place to buy ingots larger than the 8 oz bars PA sells?

Don't know.

Try searching with Google.

Why don't you send an email to Ken at all the kings men (ATKM). He casts all of his own figures and is down in Georgia. He would have some good ideas on where to look.

Im in the UK, but try Industrial Solder suppliers, many of them will also trade other alloys, including pewter ones suitable for casting.
My supplier is only hard to find on Google as all their search prioritising is geared towards the solder market, but the casting alloys are really easy to find in their products section.

You can do regional searches by typing in country, state, city as well.
