However I don't think they sell as a Surplus dealer and the difference in prices is just amazing. I think I pay between $1.85 and $2.25 per lb surplus price, not sure. Will call them tomorrow if I remember [fat chance] and post up current price.
They do have scrap bins you can pick through and buy by the pound, but it's not surplus, per se. I bought 53 lbs of small pieces of varying thickness plate to use as welding coupons for $14 a couple weeks ago. In the bins were a few pcs each of steel round tube, square tube, angle, etc, in lengths of 4 feet or so. Easily big enough to put a sidecar frame together.

Just a resource for others if they have a Metal Supermarket nearby. There's a Store Locator on the site.
The ladies used to check me they just keep an eye on me.
