    I've been looking for some 6" or 8" square tube myself for a while to build a rocket stove but I haven't found any I was willing to afford yet. Especially for an experiment.LOL

    If you don't mind pilfering through a bunch of junk(which is fun in my opinion) these 2 places are pretty cool. My grandfather and I would go to Mid-South on Saturdays when I was a kid and spend half a day digging through junk. You never knew what you would find.

    We have been using Gem City Steel for misc. items we need on our project, they are located in Marietta though. 9 times out of 10 they were able to get the materials faster than our subcontractor and cheaper (no GCs or PM mark up).
    Angle, Tubes, Grating, Sheet Metal...

    Edit:
    While I was working as a PM for a subcontracor we used Metal Specialties Inc in Austell, Ga. We mainly had them fab some base plates for what we needed, but they often kept stock on just about anything you could need, or they could make it.

    Welding shop or machine shop can get it for you from a distributor. Some industrial distributors carry steel too.
