Buy Angle Iron
Jody,Here's an idea for an informative blog...Where do I get my steel?I'm always on the lookout for any useful pieces of steel to add to my hobby welding steel stock. Recently I found some old bed frame that was 'junked' on a nearby property and used it up pretty quickly. I also got the idea that my local bedding sellers might want to part with old bed frames but found them more concerned with liabilities than recycling. I could not convince them that I didn't need THEIR money...nope! I don't know where the average website member or visitor gets material for their projects but odds are some pay that crazy Home Depot or Lowe's price. I admit that some of my first purchases were retail and I never knew how much mark-up there was till I took a chance one day and checked out one of my local steel vendors. They let me pick through their 'drops' of everything from sheet to bar to angle in all shapes and sizes. I price compared and found that I saved over 30%. Checkout wasn't quite as simple as at the retail store and I do have to be respectful and safety conscious in their facility. Another vendor in town sells drops by weight at $.65 a pound. I calculated similar savings over retail store prices and forget internet or mail order vendor costs. Then there are my local scrap yards, which would seem like a no-brainer for cheap steel but I've found stock too hit or miss and their liability doesn't allow me to pick my own.Metlbrnr
buy angle iron
Angle iron is formed into a 90-degree L-shape to be extremely stable and able to bear excessive amounts of pressure and weight. It is easy to work with and can be welded or bolted together to create even more stability.
The thickness of the angle iron will determine the type of jobs it is best suited for. It is important to consider the force applied, the weight carried and the torsion resisted. Smaller pieces are normally used for jobs where the amount of pressure and weight will be minimal, while larger thicker pieces of steel are used on walls and supporting beams of buildings that must constantly bear massive amounts of weight.

December 24, 2003Mr. Richard C. WardProject ManagerThe Pangere CorporationCorporate Office4050 West 4th AvenueGary, Indiana 46406-1718Re: Whether shop-installed angle-iron running along the length of the top flange of a beam (with the upturned angle located out from the edge of the beam) violates 29 CFR 1926.754(c)(1)(i)?Dear Mr. Ward:This is in response to your letter dated April 9, 2003, to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. You ask about the applicability of the restrictions on walking/working surfaces set forth in 1926.754(c)(1)(i). We apologize for the delay in responding.We have paraphrased your question as follows:Question: Section 1926.754(c)(1)(i) prohibits the attachment of shear connectors and other similar devices to the top flanges of steal beams prior to the installation of decking or other walking/working surfaces. We are considering the shop installation of a bent plate attachment that has an upturned angle running longitudinally along the length, but outside of the top flange of the steel beam (see Attachment A). Since the upturned leg of the angle is outside of the outer edge of the top flange, is it permissible to shop-install this plate without violating 1926.754(c)(1)(i)?AnswerIn 29 CFR Part 1926 Subpart R (Steel Erection), 1926.754(c)(1)(i) provides:
In applying this interpretation to the bent plate beam attachment, a similar conclusion is reached. As noted in the above interpretation, the welding of the base of the angle to the top flange effectively extends the width of that flange and becomes part of the walking surface. Since the upturned angle rises vertically from the (extended) flange, the tripping hazard addressed by 1926.754(c)(1)(i) is created and the use of the described bent plate beam attachment violates that standard.Finally, it is recognized that 1926.754(c)(1)(i) applies to "shear connectors and other similar devices." [Emphasis added.] Read as whole, the focus of the standard is on tripping hazards associated with field installed attachments.1 Thus, in the new interpretation, the fact that the "similar device" at issue was used to attach wood blocking rather than to enhance concrete composite action was not relevant to the application of the standard. Similarly, the fact that the device at issue in your scenario is used as a form in concrete work also does not affect the application of 1926.754(c)(1)(i). The shop installation of the device similarly creates a tripping hazard and would violate the standard.If you need additional information, please contact us by fax at: U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA, Directorate of Construction, Office of Construction Standards and Guidance, fax # 202-693-1689.

Steel angles also referred to as angle iron, metal angle and steel angle bar are long products that fall within the category of steel sections. Angles are generally available in variety of different metals. Kloeckner offers standard hot rolled angles also called rolled steel angle (RSA). Due to their versatile nature steel angles are popular throughout multiple industries. To suit different industry specific needs, the Kloeckner Online Shop stocks equal angles in various dimensions, finishes and cut to length.
The general production of steel sections including angles always starts off the same way. First, primary steel products such as blooms and billets are heated to approximately 1100C using a billet heating furnace. This process is called hot rolling. Subjecting steel to ambient temperature allows drastic reshaping using only a few rolling cycles. Rolling helps reduce the cross-sectional area, elongate and generally define the shape and specific dimension of the angle. Exposure to ambient temperature also creates blue/grey mill scale at the material surface which can be removed at a later stage using pickling, oiling or shot blasting. A descaled steel product has a smooth finish with greater design appeal.
Hot rolled angles are typically used in heavy industries where precise measurements and a smooth surface finish are deemed less important. Common industries therefore range from construction & engineering, fencing, security, storage & packing to transport and telecommunication infrastructure. Angles are used extensively in load bearing structures, where two angles can be welded together to form a tee shape. Both t sections and angles showcase good resistance to bending, should however not be subjected to twisting. Due to their more polished finish cold rolled steel sections can be applied in the manufacturing of furniture, handrails, braces & shafts.
Like most steel sections, angles are universally available. Large quantities of angles can be produced quickly and at a low cost. Angle irons are known for their versatility and therewith suitability for a wide variety of applications. Due to their low carbon content angles can easily be manipulated and connected to other materials, reinforcing their popularity by broadening opportunities for application. Steel angle bar can furthermore be manipulated without the need of heavy machinery or specialist (high performance) tooling. Rolled steel angles (RSA) have a long lifecycle and are at the same time uniquely sustainable for the fact that they are fully recyclable.
At Vitz Metals, we offer an extensive inventory of angle iron prices ranging in size from 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/8 to 8 x 8 x 1, and if you need a different size we will be happy to special order it for you. We also offer lintels in hot dip galvanized, primer coated or bare to suit your needs, and can cut to your specific lengths, with or without holes.
Lie angle is the vertical orientation of the clubhead. It affects the direction the clubface is pointing, and thus how the ball leaves the clubface. If the lie angle is too upright, the clubface will point to the left of the clubhead's leading edge. If the lie angle is too flat, the clubface will point to the right of the leading edge.
A term used to describe a lie angle in which the toe of any metal wood, iron or putter is higher than standard, or higher than preferred at impact. If the lie angle is too upright, the clubface will point to the left of the leading edge.

Shaft length plays an important role in club's head speed, path, attack angle and the player's ability to make solid contact. As shaft length increases, clubhead speed also increases. There is a point when the weight of a longer shaft, combined with the awkwardness of controlling the extra length, will result in diminishing clubhead speed. As shaft length increases, it is common for players to deliver the club more from the outside and on a shallower angle of attack. It also becomes more difficult to make solid contact. 041b061a72
