So I’ve built the table, ran some dry runs cycling the table and program. I believe I’m ready, however I’m trying to figure out how to source material.
I see most of these places online, but would prefer to support local. I’ve got some huge facilities not far from my house. I work 50 hours a week, how do you guys find time to pick up your steel?
Do you guy typically call a few yards with a set spec you want and see who within reasonable driving distance has best prices and who won’t charge a fortune to cut it down for you?
However how do you guys order your steel for the table. Do you ask to buy 4x10 sheets and then have it equally cut down to say 4’x3’4". What’s the best way to buy my steel sheets that I’m maximizing my cost towards material.
