BTW its 7075 then 7050 and 7075 is also avail in T0 which isn't stronger than 6061-T6
Yes, I agree. I didn't want to get too technical but maybe I should have explained that the final strength requires the right alloy and heat treatment. I have some 7075 T0 1/4" sheet. This can be bent and formed and then heat treated to make a very strong part. The big disadvantage with 7075 though is that it is not weldable, or at least is very difficult to weld, while 2024 welds nicely. 7075 is also heavier (denser) than the others.
