Don't like what your local steel supplier has?

It is for sale, buy it and roll your own. :D

Also something of an education about what a "billet" is.

I worked at us steel, duluth works. we had three blast furnaces, five, i think, open hearths and a rolling mill, wire mill, nail mill, coke producing plant, and pwer plant to be totally independent. started with iron ore from northern minnesota, ended up with wire, nails, barb wire, and highway fence posts. plus more. . . private infirmery, 24 hour soup house, it was quite good place. had 2500 folks working when if closed. interesting to say the least. the machine shop could damn near make anything, and did. . . . . gov't projects abound............................... thanks for the trip down memory lane.
