Default where to get DOM

metal supermarket doesnt have any 1.5" 1/4 wall DOM. metal express got bought by metal super market and pontiac steel doesnt stock it and has to order it. anyone know a place that would have a stick of 1.5" 1/4 wall dom in stock and preferably kind of close to Plymouth?


thanks

Ty

Chesterfielders can ask me, we can order tubing at a decent price when we order tons of it. In fact we just placed an order for about 25 sticks of 1.25x.187 wall DOM last Friday along with round 12L14 and CRS bar stock...

Had a neighbor ask about roll cage tubing....? Anyone on here?

I'm sooooooo glad I bought my tubing last year!!! First quote came back at $4/foot for 150' of 1.75x.125wall DOM delivered. I've got another quote on more of it and at another vendor.

I think I paid $2.50 a foot for 2"x.125DOM last year, but that was with a 5,000lb steel order!
