Do any of you buy full lengths stainless in solid or tubing? The price gougers are out there in full force, and I find that 12' of 3 3/4" round 316 , can run anywhere from $1,300 to $3,000 depending on where you get it.
I have a customer that tells me they get a specific part for $14. Which I find hard to believe when there's over 30min in machine time. The cost of the material runs about $16. I have begun to suspect that this part is made in china.
Who in the US has the best stainless prices? I use Central Steel & Wire or EMJ normally.
What are your thoughts on this?
