Default Where to buy metal?

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.

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