    That's dirt cheap. A friend gave me two 1/4" 4x8' sheets of diamond plate last week. Still has lots left. I think he was 50 bux on each. Scrapyard would be well over twice that easy.

    That's a great deal bob.

    Thats a super deal. I'd buy two or three if I was close, and I don't even need them. But 55" x 55" makes hauling in the back of a pickup a pita. You better make some cribs to hold it above the wheel wells before you go.

    I've been in contact with the seller. I'm going to get 3 either this Saturday or next. He has 1,000 of these and they have never been used!

    Cribbing should do the job. The truck can handle and is rated for we'll over a ton in the bed. 3 plates is doable.

    That really is a great price. I might have some 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 1" & 1 1/2" various pieces for sale. My side gig has over 100 5'x10'x1" road plates, so I always have one for a work table!!! Might just get rid of all of my shtuff.

    I thought about getting one for the table i am building. But at more than 500 lbs each, that is more weight than i want for a table top

    I've got a 60x60x1/2 table top and it's aces! I wanted 5/8 originally, but no deals to be had when I bought.

    What part of New Jersey is this guy in? I might go grab 2 pcs to make a table.


    Edit: I just saw the location, gotta drive through the city, makes it less appealing to me
