    Local enough ?? I'm sure a phone call to see what they have is easy. And if they have what you want a Visa / Master Card will easily have it delivered to your door.
    Non ferris and lots of standard metals / mesh and gratings is something that just doesn't get stocked by local steel supply houses. If it's not a big seller it is not stocked or just not sold by places like Posner's.
    Can Posner's get it for you, " sure " but you will pay a HUGE premium for it. And unless you buy scraps or cutoffs from a company or scrapyard you are going to pay a premium.
    Also call the steel yards down 301 in VA and see what they stock. Most of them deliver once a week to southern Md or more often.
    Good Luck.

    White Plains is perfect, I'll be within 2 miles of there tomorrow.

    I got some copper sheets for a cabinet I designed and built from a marina. They use them on boats that go through ice. What I got were leftover scraps but we're big enough to do what I needed to do.

    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Just to add some closure to this thread, I did get some copper in white plains. It was thinner than I really wanted, but it works fine for practicing. I also found that if you do want a still you can get them in kit form at a hundred different web sites.

    Glad it worked for you, and I know of at least two in the upper half of the county. When folks find out you can tig and high pressure braze, you learn alot about the hobbies people have.
