        Fill me in a little about ar400.

        isn't that supposed to be good steel for bucket repair? if so what are other applications would you prefer to use it on.

          Anywhere you need "abrasion resistance", its used a lot in sand and gravel plants, asphalt plants etc...

              Here's a good overview of AR400 steel.

                Good stuff. I need to get a line on some locally.

                I'll be calling around next week. Some flat bar and plate on hand might be the difference in getting a job or not getting a job. I don't have the equipment to deal with a 4x8 sheet so I'll have to see what options are available.

                I am thinking this is a HUGE issue. When you don't have the materials on hand customers make another call. Last week a guy calls about a 2x2 sq. tubing rail on a rollback.

                Gravy job but I messed up and said I'll have to run out and pick up a stick of tubing. Oh ok he said, I'll bring it by and let you have a look. Never heard from him again.

                  Yeah 2x2x1/4 or 3/16 is good to have on hand. I tried to get 4x1/4'' strips of ar400 for this job but they didn't have it and weren't sure if they could even get it. I had to buy a whole sheet and strip it down.

                    I called the closest supplier and he doesn't stock AR400.

                    He had some Jalloy maybe with AR designation / DP500, I'm guessing here, are those the same two things and could they be used for the same purpose as the AR400?

                      Weldonwelding, I bought some a few months ago and my price was $ 1.08 lb. so there giving you a fair price.
