Cheap, lightweight, and easy to work with. Aluminium is perfect for beginning maillers or to try out new ideas. It is also great for when you want the look of steel without the weight.
For a nicer finish we recommend the shiny silvertoned aluminium rings. These are saw-cut and can be closed almost seamlessly. They also have more shine than the uncoloured aluminium rings. They're available in various sizes in the 'anodized aluminium' category.
