Has anyone noticed angle iron to be odd sized lately? I don't make a habit of checking dimensions when we get a shipment in but it was brought to my attention this week. Since I maintain the inventory of steel at work. One of the guys asked where I was getting the odd sized iron. So I go measure some of the angle. The 1-1/2x1-1/2x1/4 measured 1.436x1.520 or so, and the 2x2x1/4 was like 1.980x2.015 or so. I do know we have got some from a different scource at times. This can be quite an issue if you are not aware of the difference. Seems like when I usually measure with a tape in the past while building a stand or something it was a lot closer then that.
Is this some second steel or what?
Thank for any thoughts on this.
