Hello everyone!

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions at where I can buy metal for sliders, bumpers, etc.? I used to live in Longmont and went to a place there, but now I live in Westminster and am not sure if there is a place that is closer. If anyone knows of a place that would be great. Thanks and I appreciate any help!

There's a thread somewhere discussing this, but I've been using Altitude Steel near Colfax and i25. They usually have a pretty decent scrap selection as well.

New - to order, den-col
scrap and new to order (there scrap is very high quality - i.e. straight, true remnant) Altitude Steel.

I've also had good luck at K & K Surplus, 8381 Brighton Rd., Commerce City for both new and used.

I like Altitudes scrap pile, it's well organized and priced by the pound.

I use K&K for scrap type stuff, C&M sells sheets of stuff like aluminum, expanded, etc and I go to Hinton for tube

I definitely will start with some scraps to practice. I have welded sliders for my old LC, but they could have looked better.
