something like:

Depends how much of the raw material your looking to buy as to the best place to buy it.

For the DIY person you need to find a fabrication shop and buy their off cuts, then ask if they can buy in things like dounuts and longer tube lengths for you.

I do it for heaps of people who do minor stuff themselves.

The back of my guillotine is overflowing with decent sized off cuts that people drop in and pilfer scoring themselves a bargain.

The price you'd pay retail for a 1000x1000mm sheet of 3mm alloy I can buy 2 sheets of 2400x1200 so i let small sections go for bugger all.

There is also JNT performance in Wollongong. Steve is great to deal with and I know alot of fabricators who buy spun alloy products from him.

Also does dounuts, AN fittings and short sections of tube.

I pilfer the shops like what Risking mentioned. I go to a place called marindi fabrication, local stainless fabricator, is awesome to deal with and sometimes throws in pieces for next to nothing

It's the cheapest way when you only need a small section of sheet or tube etc.

I always get guys bringing in cardboard templates. They find some offcut ( which always has PVC covering so it's not scratched or anything) that is big enough for what they want and away they go.

Same for tube.

Can anyone recommend a shop in Melbourne to pick up some off cuts of stainless tube? Even mild steel. Also some plate/bar.. just some odds and ends really.
Cheers.

Check your local fab workshop or even a balustrading fabricator; they always have offcuts.

Offer them a sixpack of their favourite beverage; you'd be surprised.

I don't live in Melbourne yet (moving there soon) so don't have any idea about Fabrication shops down there really. I had some work done by Jake at JDI Fabrication in Bayswater, but he didn't seem to have much in the way of offcuts/scrap hanging around unfortunately.

Me again!
Can anyone recommend a good place in Vic to buy gas?
Looking for argon/co2 mix, I've heard of people paying vastly different prices for the same thing - does anyone know a cheaper place?
Cheers.

If you go to Supergas you can knock the price down over 50% by just speaking to the sales manager.

I got offered even cheaper prices from Migwell.
