    I was getting prices of $3.80-$6.50 a foot for HREW 1.75" x .120 here. I was scared to ask about DOM.../forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    My boss had to make a good sized order at one of the places I called and got it for me for $2.69 a foot...still spendy IMO but better than the prices I was getting.

    I got a quote of $5.05 a foot for 2" .120 wall DOM last week (200' order). Just 5 months ago, that same order was $2.65 a foot. Needless to say, I won't be buying metal for a while... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
