Angle Steel Supplies

BMS, came in cheaper than suppliers like Austen Knapman, Metals4U, and TheMetalShop (about the same as similar specialists suppliers who don't publish their prices, to who you have to submit your requirements to get a quote).

I'd have given BMS 5 stars but the angle steel supplied had more than a little surface rust and I had to spend over an hour of my time, and plus a couple of sanding pads getting the rust off before I could paint them.

So factoring in the lost time and abrasive materials the rust issue made the overall cost about the same as Austen Knapman. So still ok, but could do better with rust free steel supplies and then BMS's cut to size service would be more competitive than Austen Knapman and similar suppliers.

Delivery was quick and prompt.

I will use BMS again as I think the rust issue was probably an anomaly, and that they'll do better next time re rust. I don't want to overstate the slight rust issue as on some applications a little rust is not a problem.
