    Re: Metals Price Updates

    @ av973,

    Bro Ariel, wala pang definite schedule, biglang sumulpot lang yung idea because of the metal hunting thing sa mga junk shop dyan sa Marikina, so bro jon hinted of a possible EB na rin, sa isip isip ko naman why not coz lots of PHM members would like to see bro WillyF's wood shop and see his "monster machines".

    Bro, masyadong malayo na Malanday area, shop ni bro WillyF ay nasa bungad lang ng Sto Nino area, the first street na one way palabas, I just forgot the gate number.

      @ Bro JayL,

      Iba pala pricing scheme dyan sa area mo coz here where I buy good clean metals specially the sheet metals, it can be purchased half the price if you will just buy only 1/2 of the full sheet from the original selling tag price.

      Let's say for example a full sheet sells for 2,000 K, buying half the sheet metal would only cost 1,000 K.

        Yes Brader JayL . I do agree with you. When ever I drop a visit at Al, hunting pa rin ako ng plantsa.

        Konting OT mods... salamat...

        Here are the samples of bars I usually get from Al.



        angled are for my project


        Flats for practice and trials.


        As you can see, wala pa akong metal table. Still hunting for a scrap plate.

          Brader, I mean Malanday Marikina. After Sto Nino (Bayan), Malanday na. About 3 km lang to my parents' place. Almost the same sa Al Metal shop at Lamuan. Mayroon pa kasing Malanday sa San Mateo area.

          Sige lang Brader. If merong sched and I'm free, I can even travel by public transport from Dasma to Marikina.

              IIRC 33php below 3ft .Above 3ft 35php per kilo. Usually, 6ft ang orders ko.

              Re plates, last time 1/4 in thick na plantsa ang nakita ko. Sabi ng tao nila meron daw 1/2 sa loob. Though hindi ko na inspect.

                Junk pipes would be good buys .... the larger sized ones are great post material for tool stands and welding tables.

                    Yes bro Ariel, your 2" diam. GI PIPES would just be perfect for your planned welding table, those will be stable enough to carry the weight of your 3/8" or 1/2" thick table top. Important also is that your table top receiver should be thick enough if you will use some angle bars para stable at matibay, you can also use 2" X 2" or 2" X 3" square or rectangular tubings. What size of welding table do you have in mind bro ??

                        @av973,

                        Bro Ariel, the 20" X 30" table top is fine too but I would prefer getting a size that you can immediately find a measurement when you need them fast like a 24" X 36" (2ft X 3ft), I think this size will just be perfect for small to medium metal projects you have in mind, but then that will also depend on the availability of space you will station your table. It will all depend on your needs and requirements, if you have some free time do some research on the net regarding "welding tables", at least you will have and idea that will help you before starting with the project. Do not rush the project, just take your time.


                        GOOD LUCK Bro Ariel !!!!

                              Maybe we can wait for bro WillyF to give his say regarding pricing of this I-Beam/H-Beam, I have no idea really for those newly fabricated I-Beams.

                              I just get my I-Beam/H-Beam from a junk shop nearby. I recently purchased 5' x 4" X 6" that weighs 27.5 kgs at 35.00 per kilo, I'll be using it for another metal project in mind.

                                Questions about metals...

                                Brethren, I would like help on the following regarding these:

                                50mm x 75mm x 1.5 mm thick TUBULAR PIPE - ang ibinigay sa akin nung trusted naming metal supplier ay size 2x3 or size 2x4...

                                75 x 75 x 1.5 thick ANGLE BAR - 1/4 at 3/6 ang ibinigay sa akin upang pagpilian? Malabo po sa akin...

                                Any idea po kung anong eksaktong nomenclature nito sa metal suppliers?

                                Hope you guys can help me out!
