    I don't know your area, but is there a Yellow Pages with "Steel Suppliers" in it? We have a half-dozen in this valley that specialize in supplying steel.

    Home Depot will cost you three to four times as much as a real supplier. I've never bought steel there, and wouldn't even if I needed it on a Sunday.

      TSC is just as bad as Home depot. i have picked up a pice once or twice there just to finish up some thing but no way can you get enough to build anything there. look threw the yellow pages or stop by a weld shop near you. ask them where they get theres , they might even resell to you if its a long trip to the steel suplyer. odds are good they will add a 20-30% markup though, depends on the shop and the amount you want.

        Ok, where would you buy steel if you needed it on a Sunday?

          I'd wait or make something else work...

          Okay, I suppose if the world was ending, I might reconsider.

            Hey Wireburner, try Burnett Salvage in Knoxville, 866-637-3996. They're on Prosser Rd. accross from the zoo. You'll find lots of stuff there.

            Also try Riverbend Services, here in Crossville, 931-484-5030, he's reasonable, but it ain't scrap prices.

              I heard when you got to the scarp yard you can get whatever it just takes off of your weight
