Just out of curiosity, have 4130 prices skyrocketed like mild steel has? Man, we have been dealing with steel price increases on a daily basis here at work. How has the steel industry been treating you guys who use tubing?

I get $1600 for a 6pt and $2600 for a 10pt. Chromoly only, prices include materials. Stuff like swingouts, etc is extra.

I don't do mild steel here either. For a basic 10 point in moly has been $1900. However, with the cost of everything going up, I am going to have to raise my prices as well.

well I don't work in a chasis shop, but I set up cnc tube benders for a living,We bend mostly for CATERPILLAR, CUMMINS AND MACK/VOLVO alot of it 304 and 316 stainless, 1/2 inch - 7 inch and what we are seeing is they are skimping on the tubes every way they can. They are coming in on the minimum of their tolerance on wall thickness and also the make up of the stainless..I am told we had some checked(don't know how the hell they do that) and it barely the minimum requirements (whatever that means) to be 304 ss.
