Default Need tube?? Get it here!!

If you're looking at buying a lot of DOM here in the next couple months, this is the place to do it!! I've set up a group purchase with a steel company. The only down side to it is that the guy is in near Cincinnati Ohio. So its further than most people will travel just for steel.

Here's where it gets good. I can go pick up ALL of the steel myself, and we can all just chip in on the gas. SO in order to make it worth while, we need to order a lot of steel.

Basically, he can give us the deal on an order of 260' of steel or more. But in order to make the trip worth it, we need to order at LEAST 300'.
Of course, the more we order, the better the deal gets. I'm going to be in for 160' of 1.75x.125DOM so myself alone puts us over halfway to the magic number of 300'

Prices are ROUGHLY
1.75 x .125 = $3.00
1.50 x .125 = $2.50
1.50 x .250 = $3.50
2.00 x .250 = $5.00
2.00 x .120 = $4.00

I can get these prices dropped if we get a high number of orders.
We can get flat steel and things like that as well, not just DOM, just let me know what you want and I'll see what we can put together. we'll put together an excell spreadsheet and keep track of everyone. And what they want to order. We will give everyone plenty of time to get their money/orders in. For now we'll set Jan 20th as the final day to get all your money/orders in (that way you have time to save up for all the steel you'll need). And then as soon as the steel man gets it all in, I'll make the run out to pick it all up and get it all into my garage to make sure to keep it out of the weather and let everyone know I've got it all in.

Post up if you're interested.

if you can get a better deal than that, I'm all about it.. it doesn't really get much better than this though.. I've done a little searching.. between you and I that already puts us over the 300' we'd need to make the trip worthwhile

3.75 a foot in Jacksonville, NC. All I did was ask for a quote for 175ft. I am sure we call with an order, it would be alot cheaper.

a good place to get tube is Stock car Products in richmond. Well atleast it was. check'em out. They sell dom and HREW. DOM is the heat but gets expensive. HREW can be used for alot of apps. and still be strong as shit but lighter on the wallet. Alot of Stock car type parts places have some interesting pieces and parts to check out. for example, I had a friend of mine spend 3 days making flat slider shackle brackets. Stock car products had them in the catolog for 12 bucks each. What's ur time worth........

Brady, I have a pretty good relationship with a sales guy at Ryerson Steel(and they deliver). Our club at VT always got all our steel from them and he usually gives us a pretty good price. If you PM me some rough quantities of what we're looking at, I'll get him to quote it as well.
