Where to buy metal

So I tried looking at Lowe's and Home Depot, even Tractor Supply, which actually didn't have a horrible selection, but not what I'm needing. Anyways, does anyone have suggestions/experience as to where to buy metal from nearby? Looking for 3/16 2x6, some various round tube, and some 1/4 2x2 and 1.5x1.5. Wanting to start working on bumpers and sliders for my heap. Thanks for the help,

All of the places you mentioned are stupid expensive. Usually around here I get mine from Carpco Steel, but you should be able to search the yellow pages in your area for steel, and find some places. I know that at most of places you mentioned you will pay 10-12 bucks for a 3 or 4 foot piece, and at Carpco I can get most of that type stuff for less than $1 a foot.

Yeah, once I saw the prices I realized they were out of the question. Tried to google it and ended up with alot of hits for pre-fab'd metal workshops and sheds. May have to go old tech and look in the yellow pages.
