I have a buddy who hals steel for a living. He came over this weekend for a beer and a tour of the brewery. I was explaining to him my plans for a new rig. He asked me how much of what I needed. I figured I will need 2 - 69", 2 - 71", 8 - 16", and 2 - 30" of 2x2 1/8 inch steel. He told me it was not a problem. His employer let the guys take pieces they need for personal, or friends projects. So, I gave him a cut sheet, and in a few days, I should have all my parts, pre-cut, and free of charge! CHA-CHING!!!!!!
