Another possible is the West Yorkshire Steel Company, www.westyorkssteel.com

Ask for BS1449 CS95, which is the almost exact equivalent of the SAE1095 steel that the American boutique sawmakers use. It's a 0.95% carbon spring steel, and can be obtained either annealed or hardened and tempered (which will be the condition you'll need). West Yorks Steel's website says they can supply cut to size, though I don't know if they have a minimum order requirement.

Does anyone know where I can get the material to make a saw plate?
Really interested in making one.

Thanks

I tried College engineering and got nowhere, they were very nice but I got the impression they didn't want my relatively small order.

I'm surprised at College Engineering as I've bought from them often - mainly at ME Shows where their business is supplying small quantities to model makers?
It's more likely they don't stock it?

Have you tried Cromwells?
