    Where are you guys getting steel from? Any place cut plate to size for a decent price? I don't have cutting stuff yet. I don't really want to try a zigsaw.

    I found a place in Mesa that was pretty proud of their steel based on the prices. They and had no interest in cutting anything.

    I'm looking for steel to mount a winch, to make a small welding table and some diamond plate for another project on the truck.

    Thanks

    I always use american metals on broadway, they have always been frinedly and they are fair or decent on pricing,

    for metal I always use a grinder with a 4.5 cut off wheel, works just fine, I get my cut off wheels from harbor fright, 10 of them in a pack for 7 bucks:D

    Well they have new steel for sale on one side of Washington and used and other stuff on the opposite side. I was just quoted 56 bucks for a piece of 3/8" plate steel 16 by 28 and they have a break there and they'll cut it for you. One of my favorite places.

    the place I mentioned above will sell scrap for 30 cents a pound, if your park, just walk to the back and look around, just where boots and look lke you have some sence or they will ask you to leave,

    i have got alot of clean scrap in sizes from 4 feet by 2 feet numerous times at scrap prices, also various 2x6 and other sizes at the 30 cents a pound.
