Ok got me a welder, now I wonder where I can get metal for the purpose of building a tower blind for the farm? Can someone point me in the way? Preferably something either in Auburn/Montgomery/Pensacola/Orange Beach area...thanks

Bell Steel has metal. They do have a minimun I think it's around $75.00.

I believe Tull Metals is in Birmingham. Also Birmingham Steel used to be there also. I think they have a pilot location in your Montgomery. Check the yellow pages under steel distributers

do you have any clue how much the metal is going to cost me? 15' tall tower stand; "X" bracing up each side. ribbed out top platform (and then i build the box stand out of wood on top of the metal platform)

There is Sabel Steel and Alabama Stele Supply in Montgomery. I'm in Montgomery. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

If you're in Montgomery, look in the Bulletin Board under Building Materials. Also, you might be able to use EMT [conduit] for cross bracing. Mayer Electric in Mtg has plenty.

Reminds me of when a friend proudly asked my opinion of his newly built tower blind. It was leaning pretty bad, so I asked him why he built it out of plumb. He said they ran out of maple.:doh
