    Where to find steel

    Other than BORG. Thinking about making a small bench and using steel for the legs. Any place in the Raleigh/Johnston Co area?

    Got a nice little piece of walnut today .

    You can try Dunn welding on 210. Or contact Tew Welding in Dunn. I know Tew will sell the steel to you not sure about Dunn welding.

    Re: Where to find steel

    David, I’ve got to ask...why’s a woodworker using steel legs on a woodworking bench? I do have to admit, I don’t work with steel so it would be out for me.

    Hey, TENdriver. I think that wood and steel, if done right look great. Take a look.

    Re: Where to find steel

    Dillion Supply. They are located right off US 264/64 east in Raleigh. Take New Hope Road exit (heading east on 264/64,) and at top of hill, go straight across New Hope Road. When you get to next intersection, Dillion is on the right. They only sell in full lengths, usually 20'. For a fee, ((usually $5) they will cut a 20' length in half so you can haul it. You have to go to sales desk, order and pay for steel, then drive around back, and into service center. I normally just get the 20' length, and secure it to extension ladder on top of truck

    Re: Where to find steel

    You might check out recycling/scrap yards. I don’t know about the Raleigh area,but I’ve found usable metal which they sold to me priced by the pound. If you have reason to drive to Wilmington, Southern Metals Recycling has an outlet that has usable scrap metal and new surplus metal, all priced by the pound.

    The walnut crotch looks interesting for a small table project and a steel understructure adds a new element. Why not?

    Re: Where to find steel

    Got several feet out in the garage of 1" sq. and 1-1/4" sq. May not be worth the drive over but if you get near, we could work something out. How much do you need? PM me if your interested.

    Re: Where to find steel

    I bought some scrap steel from these guys, http://www.jdrecyclers.com/, off Cheek Rd in Durham. Also recommend Dillon Supply.

    Re: Where to find steel

    Jd recyclers in Durham is a great place to source small quantities.

    Dillon has a great inventory, but their prices tend to be high.

    For larger quantities, consider Steel and Pipe in Sanford. Usually they are 15% or so less than Dillon.
