    I know some people that have gotten steel from their Roanoke location and had good dealings with them. But from the looks of it they do have a Richmond location too

    i just talked with a supplier buddy of mine down in richmond. he doesnt have any 5/16 thick but does have 3/8 thick. your cost would be $101.00
    what you are looking for is not readily availible and that is why it cost so
    much. if you want that pc of 3/8" , let me know and i will set it up for you to
    pick it up.

    Better hurry!..

    Scrap prices rose five bucks a ton here,to 115 bucks a ton yesterday!..:eek1: --so you'd better buy it quick,or I bet the price for new steel will take another hike shortly!..wish I hadn't scrapped most of my heavy junk already...:doah:
