Has anyone found any nuts-and-bolts analysis on what a potential 10% tariff on aluminum might mean for US aircraft manufacturers?

There's already a thread started on this, for some reason the system isn't letting me paste the link.

The other tread has been moved to non-aviation it seems.

Alcoa seems to control the aviation grade aluminum market around here.

Not sure where those Alcoa plants are located thought.
