Yellow pages..local swap papers...newspapers..alot of times those papers will have a dedicated section for people like scrap yards and steel suppliers to advertise there.
You can even stop by a few local weld shops or fab shops and ask them where to get materials,alot of times these fab shops will have huge dumpsters full of scrap and may let you take what you want for scrap to practice on.
With the prices of fresh steel materials these days,i get inventive on where to find steel at a good price or scrapped.
