Where to find scrap steel (tube, channel, angle)

3 posts in this topic

I've got a chance to fix up an older ultra shack drop down fish house that needs to have some framing replaced. Its been 15 or more years since I welded, but I'm willing to get back on that bike.

I'm looking for 3" rectangular tube around 3/16" thick ideally, but would consider 3" channel or angle in a pinch. Would need a couple that are 10 feet long and one or two that are 7 feet long.

I know where to buy new steel stock - what are some places to go root through scrap - do such places exist that are open to the public? And, if they exist, what are my chances at finding these lengths?

I've also thought about buying a couple junk trailers with the right stuff and cutting them down.

What do you think? Thanks for any help...

Schwartzmans/Maxies (by Fair Grounds) in Anoka will sell you scrape stuff. I am sure they have it, give them a call. I have bought some used alum. sheets and steel over the years from them. Also you can price out Crow River Farm Equip. In Dayton. They will have it new/fresh on had and it is closer.

Hope it comes out ok. Hate to see something break on the way or out on the ice. I am sure it should be fine.

Good luck!

Sweet, thanks. I was also just told about National Iron in Hugo, too, they are open to the public with unprocessed piles.

Whatever is done, you can be sure we'll make sure fishing is not impacted. smile
