Anyone got some 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 1/8" mild steeel angle iron hanging around?

Just wondering if anyone has kicking about the place some S/H "scrap"
angle iron that I could use to make myself something.
I'm wanting to make a storage shelf thingy.
The parts list is as follows:
Material: 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" x 1/8" mild steel angle iron (or similar)
120cm long x 4
114.6cm long x 6
59.6cm long x 4
Are scrap merchants sell angle iron bits?
BTW I live near Wakefield West Yorkshire. Any local person have some
angle iron you can sell to me?

Getting as rare as hens' teeth these days but have you thought of trying to find some old fashioned iron bed-stead frames?

There's a second hand steel merchant in Dewsbury:
James Dunkerley Steels Ltd
01924 451644
Very cheap prices (c. 25-50% on new prices)
I paid 10 quid for a 20ft length of 50mm RHS
He does a delivery service (was around 15 quid 2-3 years ago) and will also cut (roughly) to length.
Morley Waste Traders - about 5 minutes from White Rose centre
will let you walk round (take wellies if it's anything like wet) and take what you want - I usually pay a quid or two each for up to six foot lengths of pretty much anything I can carry
They had a lathe there last year - about 10ft centre, 12" centre height 3ph he wanted 150 quid for it, including delivery! Wish I had the room.

I am vaguely reminded me of a popular music hall song or might have been a monologue (long before even my time)...

Try "Mallard Metal Packs" 0121 624 0302
They currently list 30 x 30 x 3 or 40 x 40 x 3 black angle.
No connections other than being a satisfied customer.

Well, in end I got 60 foot of 25 x 25 x 3 black angle which I thought would probably do the job.
Cost me £15 inc delivery!
(Well it cost me £16, the guy did not have the fiver change).
