Your Priority Mail package is on its way. They say two days.

I dunno what to say.
Can't wait to see what's in it :)

There's a short story. Usually when I go to the Steel Store, they have DRUMS of stainless. I know the people after dealing with them a long time, and they are not very particular about small rems. I thought I'd be able to get a cubic foot of them. But, they had just had them picked up before Thanksgiving. The guy found a rem on the floor and sliced it into about a dozen pieces, and it would have cost to get a bigger piece chopped up. I have to go there again soon to get some stair rail components. Lemme know if those will work for you, and next time I'll try to get more.

Sure thing!
I'm probably proving a certain lack of sanity here, but I always wanted to learn how to handle square sails.
Maybe this winter I can get the parts made and give it a try come spring!?!

Package arrived today.
Too cool, Steve. Thanks. This will work. Just don't watch how I do the fabricating... :) Chop say, flapper wheel and files is about it these days. But we get 'em done.

Like I said, play with them and learn. Stainless is a horse of another color. If you need particular pieces, sizes, or shapes, let me know. They MUST be able to fit in a flat rate Priority Mail box to be cost effective. Max weight is 70#, and when the barrels are full, it's not a problem to pick up that much.
I'm going to make a water feature out of flat pieces of scrap granite. They will be held up with simple "I" shaped pieces of stainless, for the corrosion resistance, strength, and appearance. I am going back to Vegas Wednesday, and will be there a few days. Let me hear from you, and I'll try to score some more.
I'd actually like to get a small tig, even a Miller Thunderbolt, and so some sculpture. Trouble is, without a laser or plasma cutter, forming is a bear. So, it would be a sculpture of remnant flat pieces of all kinds. Still think I could come up with some neat stuff, then run a small water pump to play some water on it, with lighting from below. Or fiber optics, which would disappear when wet.
Andy Warhol, look out!
