Where to buy angle iron?

Does anybody know where I can buy a few feet of angle iron and steel plate? I need them to attach an outfeed table to my contractor's saw and the local borg doesn't seem to carry any. I'm not sure where to even start looking.

In the yellow pages under Metal Fabrications or Steel Supplier - should have a couple there in each.

I pick some up when I see a bed frame being thrown away. But it can be hell to drill. At times I've wished for a plasma cutter.

Another source, a shop for commercial shelving parts. They have angle iron as well as better looking metal shelving frames and parts.

Look in the yellow pages. In my area it's under "Steel Distributors" and give them a call. I find that they are quite helpful. There may be a minimum order but frequently not. The yard I use will cut to +/- 1/16" for $1.00 be cut. On large cross section material this is worth doing.

plate? I

borg
Use a laminate top rather than metal. Sheet metal can easily be out of flat and will be harder to work with. You have to make cut outs for the miter slots in the steel, that is easily done with a router on a wood or MDF top. I've never seen a metal outfeed. Thee must be a reason. Ed

the local borg

looking.
If you can find a local welding shop or "ornamental iron" builder, they can probably help you with scraps. Or ask local metal recyclers if you can check their bins.
