Never buy aluminum extrusion with out visit Haggerty Metals first. Was at the scrap yard for lunch, they have a lot of aluminum extrusion and more comes in everyday. They had a 6 step stairs case made out of it. Also had a machine of some kind made out of long piece of aluminum extrusion. They sell Aluminum for around $1.00 lb. Next time I go I need to bring tool to take off all the t-slot connectors. Going to build a 2x72 belt grinder out of aluminum extrusion, just need to turn the wheels on the lathe for the grinder.

Can't argue with that price, But you can also run into some good deals on the 80/20 Garage Sale site.

They sell surplus items & material that was returned due to wrong size or minor damage.
