    Default Anyone purchase from Online Metals?

    Hello everyone,
    I've been perusing this web site http://www.onlinemetals.com/ and they seem to have a very good selection of materials, plus they have a calculator that allows you to figure out how much a custom cut will cost without having to email for a quote.

    I'm not sure how their pricing is but I don't mind paying more if I can get my material pre cut, and I was also wondering how their service is. I would appreciate hearing of your experience with this company.
    Thanks,
    Gene

    I used them quite a bit when I worked at a shop a few years ago. Their service was excellent and their shipping was reasonable. I haven't tried them in a while, though. And I just checked out that speedymetals link: I can drive there! Woo hoo!

    I pulled up Speedy Metals just to see how much they charge for 1.75 x .065 SS round tubing for a motorcycle exhaust build.

    They didn't have it but what surprised me is the 'cutting tolerance' -

    48" Plus or Minus 1"

    72" Plus or Minus 1-1/2"


    Maybe I'm too critical but that seems kinda loose.

    They offer CNC plasma cutting service. I use them for my custom cut 3/16 SS.
