yeah.. like I said, I knew I paid more.. just surprised at how much more.
If you need to buy some new sheet then do what I did. I went to DenCol and had them shear the pieces that I needed. You only pay for the steel that you need plus the shear cost (~$5 per piece). They don't make you buy the whole sheet.
4x8x3/16 is 152$ at K&K, 1/8" is 112$, 1/4" is expensive but they have some long sections a little over 2' wide and maybe 5' long in surplus at the moment, going for about 75$.
K&K is great for short cuts and scrap but they are expensive for full sheets/sticks. I go to either Hinton Steel or DenCol. DenCol was $50 cheaper on my cuts. 5 pieces ranging in sizes: (all 3/16")
Total: $124.72 + tax
This is the steel for my skids including the fuel tank.
