    Welding Coupons to Purchase?

    Where, or should I say, is there a place where one could purchase some welding coupons for practice for a reasonable cost? I know steel prices are high now, but your knowledge might justhelp a noob welder out, especially since I begin welding school next month. I want to practice stick & MIG….especially in between class sessions, which will be a week apart. I have a desire to accelerate my skills, to where I become a very good welder.

    Weld Metals Online seems to be sold out of carbn steel 3/16” thick coupons, and don’t even list 1/4” - 1/2” coupons. Bummer! I’ll look at Triangle Engineering to see what they might have.

    shipping on steel is a killer. id think ud be better off buying it local, or better yet, find something/scrap, laying around somewhere, and cut it up

    I’ve got about 2/3rd a sheet of 3/16” plate, but was hoping to get some 3/8” or 1/2” plate. Last time I checked with my local steel supplier, [about 3 months ago] a 4x8 plate of 1/2” thick was over $700. I don’t have anything to lift that with anyway…the dealer would cut in half, but thats about it.

    ask about bar stock.
    see if they have "drops".
    see if they will sell you what under their benches.

    The local steel place near me sells pre-cut coupons from their drops for $1/lb. Its highway robbery but its cheaper than buying a 4x8 plate. Maybe there's a similar outfit near you.

    Thanks for that link. I didn’t know that company was in our region…..probably about 75 miles from me.

    I used https://weldmetalsonline.com/ last week, good prices but they were out of pretty much everything over 1/8". The shipping wasn't bad, wasn't fast but not bad. The big upside to buying coupons at a place like weldmetalsonline is that they come ready to weld, I'm pretty sure they are cold rolled steel so there is no mill scale to grind off.

    How long of a drive are you from Richmond? Just for reference. There are probably some big metal suppliers in Northern VA and I know there are in Richmond. Probably one in Chesterfield, too, since there's an industrial supplier out there (either McMaster or MSC - I forgot)
