I know at Pontiac Steel, where I buy my stock from, they have a scrap bin that anything in it is free. Its pieces under 8" or so. Otherwise, the short drops rack is about $0.50 a pound.

There's a trailer/fab shop down at 25 1/2 on old van dyke. They dont sound like as good of a deal as the pontiac place, but theyre close.

Clark's Welding. It depends on what kind of mood the old man is in. I've been in there when he's in a real pissy mood, and you can't get an answer for anything out of him. But other times he's pretty friendly and helpful. I know they do real nice work there though.
