Looking for Steel Supply in LA Area?

I am looking for a local supplier for new and surplus / recycled steel plate, rods, square tubing, etc. Also for salvage scrap. One man's trash steel plate is another man's Jeep skid plate in the making. I'm in the Pasadena area near LA. I used to have a great supplier / recycler in Murrieta for my fab projects, but now I am 70 miles from there. Home Depot is too expensive for the volume I need, and they don't carry much. Any recommendations?
Thanks.

I always go to M&K in Gardena for new metal, or to look through their drop cuts (they sell drop cuts of sheet and tubing by the pound). www.mkmetal.net Me being on the west side of LA, it's fairly close. But it's enough of a drive that I usually get twice what I need for a given project, so that I always have extra material to start the next project with so I don't have to wait until I can get out there again.

M&K sells tubing in 20 foot lengths, and will give you 1 free cut on each piece, I usually just have them cut each stick into two 10 foot pieces for easier transport, unless I know that I will be better off (less waste material) with a different length cut or no cut at all. I mostly get the 1x1" 1/16" thick steel tubing for making furniture, I believe it's about $12 something for each 20 foot stick.

Thanks! I will check them out too. I stopped by IPS today in South El Monte and was surprised to see that they were kinda like a Harbor Freight with steel stock. It was neat, but I didn't price any steel stock.

Thanks again.

I believe there is a Pattons steel sales in Burbank, I get most of my mild stuff from their store in Ontario. I also have a Mcfadden Dale industrial hardware on my street, lucky me LOL

PS, may be called queen steel if I recall.
