      Look in the message base and search for alloy. There have been smoe good discusions on why you would want to use each alloy.

      Cool, thanks.

      Actually I am having the reverse problem. I have a really good
      local dealer where I can buy cheap ingots of any of a wide variety of
      aluminium alloys. My problem is I cant find much information on the
      differences in casting of the different alloys. I have been able to find
      material on *machining* the metals but little on *casting* difference.
