Went to ullrich today and they said 5083 might be abit brittel.They said 7000 series would be better. Also been tolled by another source that 6061 would be good.Is anyone able to clear this up.Also need to know where to get aluminium from.Ullrich quote over $400 for enough 7000 series to make clamps.

What thickness and size are you after?
I have some access to pieces.
Just let me know what grade temper your after.
I'm not surprised the companys will try to sell you the highest grade at the highest price.
