  • Know of a good steel salvage or surplus in Albuquerque?

    Would any of you gents know if a good place in Albuquerque to buy steel, drops, rems, surplus, cutoffs, etc. I have a buddy that I am setting up in blacksmithing in ABQ and he'll be in need of round and flat hot rolled steel. I figured if anyone would know, it would be you fellows.

    In advance, many thanks!

    I dont live in ABQ, but I know a bunch of blacksmiths there.
    They mostly belong to the SWABA-
    http://www.swaba-abana-chapter.org/

    and your friend should too.
    They can tell him all about where to get whatever is gettable down there.

    They are meeting this weekend in Riberia, 85 miles from ABQ, and he should go.

        Ries and Falcon 67--thanks for the info, I will definitely pass this along. The ABANA chapter is definitely the organization to hook up with.

        Again, many thanks for the help and the info, it is much appreciated.

            Koenigs, on Zuni just east of San Pedro. Ted's gone but his son-in-law is running the place. He's shut down the machine rental and cleaned up the yard. The prices are a bit higher, I think, and there isn't a lot of new stuff entering the yard.

            I'll be - they have a website: http://www.koenigsonline.com/

            Other than that it's generally just cheaper to run down to Reliance and buy whole sticks. That way you know what you're getting and there's no guesswork.
