Cheapish C, U, L Channel Supplier

Looking for the cheapest supply of C (U) or L channel aluminum.

I've got my local shop down to $2.19 a foot for C Channel (Often called U Channel) at .040 at 1.5 inches for each leg.

Any tips helpful.

I'm in Austin.

Hey bass-o-magic, this is one place you want to go "above and beyond", after all, it is where it all meets and rivited together. I went to a building material salvage yard and found some square 1 1/2" extruded aluminum tubbing and ripped it down the center to wind up with two c-channels. I paid by the pound, and I believe this greatly strengthens the structure of these trailers.

Did the same thing but i got 8 foot sections for 1.25 a foot. It all depends on how busy they are and how much aluminum they have in stock.
