View Full Version : WTB 4130 Steel Plate

Having trouble finding 1/4 X 4 4130 steel plate at a reasonable cost. Any Ideas out there. I'm willing to buy a 12' piece if I have too. Thanks

I presume that you have tried the obvious sources like Ryerson Steel, Central Steel & Wire or some of the other steel suppliers out there. My Ryerson book does not list a 1/4 x 4 flat bar in 4130. They only go to 3" wide, but they might be able to get it in 4". Cost is another thing. "Reasonable" is such an ambiguous term.

You might also check McMaster-Carr or even the Thomas Register (under steel suppliers). All of these places are represented on the Internet, I'm sure.

Good Luck.

Check scrap yards out - you can score good stuff there (what's a little rust...)

Yarde metals if in New England or surrounds. Otherwise, check local shops and see if you can "piggyback" your order onto their orders to save shipping. This plate will not be cheap I am sorry to say, I'll bet it is in the $100.00 range for 12 foot?
