Where can i get a ballpark idea of how much some steeel is going to cost me to build a trailer. I'll be looking for some 6" channel and 4" angle. I just want to try and compare what it would cost me to build some things i need as oppossed to buying them outright, seeing as i won't have anything to do for a few months. I've priced all the other parts , but don't know where to look for steel pricing.

look in your phone book for steel suppliers and go to some of them and get some prices, my supplier does it all the time

Here in the N.W., steel prices are pretty high.. We had a price listing on 3" pipe from 6-22-04 and I quoted a customer on it, then the steel came in with the invoice on 8-04 showing that it had gone up 100%. Needless to say, we lost a few bucks on that deal. So my advice would be to call around a bit, you might get a great deal on older prices.

Shapiro Supply is a distributor in St Louis that has their standard assortment listed online, with prices.
I do not know how often they adjust their prices, or how often they update their website.
