    Default WTB left over steel



    Hey guys, building a new off road trailer, got the frame built up but am looking for any excess steel you have laying around.
    looking for decking and sides as well as thinner lighter steel to build up the sides such as 1x1 or 2x2 1/8

    After building the frame I over estimated the amount of steel I needed and have about 15 feet of 2.5x2.5 receiver hitch square tube steel left over if anyone needs it.

    Is it the actual receiver hitch tubing that has the seem inside removed? I'm not home right now, but I might have a stick of 1.5x1.5 square I could trade you. Or maybe 1.5" x 3/4" x 1/8" square. (I used up one of those on my last project and cant remember which. Anyways, no promises, but I never mind having receiver hitch tubing sitting around, and I probably have something I could trade you for it. Wont be in town until this weekend though.

    Hey, sorry I never got back to you. I do have some misc steel stock sitting around. Mostly in the 1x1, 1.5x1.5, type sizes. If you want to come poke around I would trade some to you. I also need some of that receiver hitch tubing now for a project at work, so if you would prefer, I would just buy it from you as well. Let me know if any of that interests you.
