sheet metal in western montgomery county pa.?
« on: October 07, 2013, 10:56:01 AM »
I'm having a tough time finding a steel supplier in my area (Perkiomenville Pa. right outside of Pottstown). I contacted two, Yarde metals that requires I fill out a business application and tax id.# etc. They quoted $96 for a sheet of 16g 48" x 96" and Hoover steel (waiting to hear back). I never bought anything of that size. Does this price sound about right? I looked online and the shipping alone is $130 for two sheets (Ouch!). Anyone in the area know of someone?

$40 a sheet, that's sounds really good! I'm just under an hour from the Walt Whitman. It would be worth the trip. What is the name of the place.

We only have one metal shop here in cheyenne. So prices really seem to vary here. So times it feels like your getting a great deal, the next time you buy a sheet of metal, it feels, well, painful......40 bucks is a great price.

Thanks for asking. Fazzio's in Glassboro was alittle further than I thought. I don't know if your aware of it but they also have one in Delaware that is actually a few miles closer for me. I emailed Hoover steel in Schwenksville (twice  >:() and they never got back to me. M.B. Glick LLC in Fleetwood is only a half hour from me. $40 for 4'x'8' 16g c.r.s.,  not too bad. Might even be closer to you if your in Lansdale.

I haven't figured that one out yet. I'll be searching for someone who can handle that. That'll be the next step after I get the steel. I'll need one 80 inch long 90 degree bend in each sheet (pick-up bed sides).

If you need, instead of paying to have your metal bent for the box, just have another piece cut same length X 3" and weld it at  45*.

Depending where (haven't found anone who does it, yet) and how much I probably don't have much of a choice but to do that,.
