I'm looking for metal sheet like the stuff they make photoetched parts out of. The thinnest aluminium sheet I've seen is around 1 mm... I need something in the 0.2 mm range. Where can I get this sort of plated nickel sheet?

Hi,
thin sheets of aluminium are used for offset-printing. Try a search this way.
It's what I used to do the roof of my trailer. Take a look

It's very easy to cut and you have lots of possibilities with it.

Central Hobby PLus at Centrepoint has some very thin brass and aluminium sheets, but beware of the high price.
Or maybe u would want to use a soft drink can, but got to do a lot of preparation work.
