    I guess maybe I shouldn't complain so much (yeah, right)

    My prices on larger dimension sticks is better than you're getting out there on the West Coast.

    Just remember.........J. Powell says that current inflation is transitory

    I buy mainly 12 and 14 gauge steel plate for the weather vanes that I make. Dec. 2020 I paid $50 per 4x8 sheet of 14 gauge and $70 for the 12 gauge. Last month I paid $150 for the 14 gauge and decided to make the weathervane arms from 14 instead of 12 gauge. Was selling them for $59 each but had to go to $69. Have seen a decline in business with the higher prices. I used to charge $3 above actual shipping cost to cover cost of the box and packing peanuts but am up to $5 over cost and next order of boxes will need to increase to $6.

    I haven't bought any new metal since last Dec. so I haven't kept up on increases, but I do know our scrap prices maxed out at just over $400/tonne Cdn. last month. Seems to be slipping now so it will take a while for new metal to come down.

    I wish I has prices like that. I just quoted a stainless mezzanine, 8' x 24' x 10' high. Almost 45k for materials alone with almost no waste.
