    Default Steel stockist around Faro?

    Looking for some mild steel, flat bar mainly, maybe some cut plate. Anyone know of a stockist around Faro?
    Ideally pre shot blasted .

    Found Inox already but they just do stainless, no mild steel.

    Thanx!

    I used to use the place in Patacao, before Portimao. Just after the rail bridge on the old road.
    But, just looked in my old phone book and Metalofarense is in Faro and Todometal in Olhao.

    (might be a bit out of date )

    Thanks!

    That was quick

    Cycled past Metalofarense but looked like it was more trunking and the like, I'll go have a chat.

    Todometal looks hopeful, thanks again.

    Mental moment!! Patacao is near Faro, I was thinking of Parchal and the outfit is Chagas. Bought huge amounts of stuff off them and they used to have a cut off saw to make stuff more transportable. Bit of a hike on your bike tho...

    Have you asked Bruce? He has contacts for steel and may even have what you're looking for in the workshop.

    Cheers, found some flat bar over in Olhao today, Jose America down near the boatyards -

    Looks like they kick out some really nice architectural work and were happy enough to sell me some 100 x 8 flat.

    There's a stainless fabricator down there as well came with references, I'll post a link for anyone ending up here via google.
    No luck getting anything with the mill scale shot blasted off but hey ho

    Better get a move on while a hire car is still a euro a day...

    He's closed down a bit earlier this year then. Any idea when he reopens? I need to lift out hopefully as usual first week in Jan.

    2nd Jan rings a bell, I'll check . Closed early as there are some random Portuguese holidays thrown in, so would have been short weeks anyway.
