Amix steel and salvage out in chilliwack had some good prices. went there yesterday as first time customer meaning no account or relationship with the guys i got 120 ft of 1.5 inch sched 40 for 160 bucks and a 4x7 sheet of 3/16 plate for 130 plus taxes. Good selection of tube, sheet and angle there but they wont cut up full pieces. They will cut them for you to transport but they wont sell half pieces unless they have it kickin around in a scrap pile or something. i was quoted 3.xx a foot for 2x3 tube, was almost half the price of alder steel. all their prices are by the pound so it takes them a second to calc by the foot prices for you but they do. also, you didnt get this from me but one of the guys in the yard i was chattin up said he will cut whatever i want for a case of beer.

I work in a steel fab shop so could get some pretty good pricing. Also have access to CNC Plasma beam line as well as CNC Plasma plate machines. Boss said if I can find a big enough clientel in the 4x4 groups, might start producing custom parts. Basically anything out of tubing, angles, beams, and plate up to 4" thk we can do.

So are you saying these are close to cost or wholesale prices that you or the public can buy at?

my buddy bought some steel at the place on river road it was 1" by 1" tubing 67cents a foot new not rusty
it between the alex fraser bridge and the tunnel i forgot the name
If you can tell us who the seller of that steel is on river road, would be great to know. Looking for 2x2 steel 1/8 inch or 3/16 wall thickness. Aldermart sells it for 3.50 per foot

About to back-half my toy.... anyone got recent tips? Metal supermarket is the easiest/closest... but I always feel like a retail idiot (basically what I am).

I need 10' of 2'x3' 3/16th, and a stick of 1-3/4" in HREW.

Thanks!
Mark

Wow there been some good ideas on here. There is Reliable Steel in Poco on Broadway street 604-474-4755. I buy my metal from them, they always have crops.
