Scrap Metal Supplier--Mid-Michigan Area

Just treated myself to a new Lincoln welder so I can make some repairs to my tired old frame. Does anyone know of any suppliers where I could purchase scrap steel at a discount? I live in the Jackson, MI area and work in Lansing. Looking for tube steel, angles, flat stock, etc.--anything I can use for little projects.

Grab the Yellow Pages and look under steel suppliers. The local steel yard has an add the says "Open to the Public". Just call and ask if they sell retail.

The yard I go to has an area where all the mis-cuts, leftovers, and returns are kept. You can dig through it and buy any of it, tube, plate, angle, by the pound.

Call Alro. There are several locations between here and there. Ask for some drops of the approximate size you need. Lansing location is on Willow just West of MLK.
