I need to buy some sheet steel, not masses but enough to do some patch/weld repairs. Where can I buy it ?

The last time, a few years ago my regular motor factor in Flitwick sold it, but no longer.

Anyone have any ideas ? Ideally Dunstable/MK/Luton/Ampthill area .

Google you local metal stockist and ask to have a look at their sheet offcuts, always a lot cheaper than having a piece cut

We use Smiths in Biggleswade and Arena Stock in Letchworth, but might be a bit too far for you.

Alternatively Ebay is your friend http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_trksid=p5197.m57...

I couldn't find anywhere local to me in Hemel and just ended up getting some off ebay. (local metal merchant I found on the net didn't seem to exist when i tried to find them in person) The sellers shop I used on ebay was called metal mania. Not the cheapest way to do it mind you...
