    Price for steel plate

    I was quoted a price of $90 for a piece of steel 1/4 X 2ft X 3ft. That seems expensive to me, since guys here have been talking about buying steel for less than $.50/lb. But then, I'm new. The seller told me that plate was especially expensive--true?

    Edit: Sheesh. With ONE phone call I found a place a little bit further away that is half the price. I'm learning.

    No only are you paying for the sheet, but you are also paying to have them cut it to your specifications.

    Ya... But not that expensive.

    That cut weighs only 60 lbs.

    Good Luck

    I usually go to my steel supplier and look for drops that are the size that I need, that way I'm not paying for them to cut it.

    Like they all said buying less than a full sheet will cost you, but that's a bit high even for a cut.
