Hi Octopia, 
I've started on this, and I have found other online marketplaces for
scrap metal. Many of them though seem to be sites requiring membership
for a fee, like the sites I garnered for the last question. Some are
metal companies themselves selling scrap. Would this be all right with
you? Also, do you need as many sites as what I provided in my answer
for you?

Hi Techor, 

Sorry for the late reply. 

Yes, companies selling scrap could be useful, but it is a numbers?
game there. I need to reach as many as possible.

Well, it is more what is the content of these sites. If three/four
sites provide sufficient offers, then that would be generally enough.

Hi Octopia,
Hope I haven't been away too long. I was able to get a number of sites
listing scrap metal dealers (did I understand correctly that this is
what you were looking for?).  I have about 16 sites, though some of
them are lists of other sites on scrap metal. I wonder if this
approaches your requirement for this question.

By the way, I'll see if I can attend to the other question. :)

Hi Techtor, 

No prob. I am here now ; ) 

OK, the issue is finding suppliers who have current offers for sale
(or on a regular basis). This could be through marketplaces, agents,
brokers, or main suppliers (as you can see from the link
above.) The bigger the number, the better my chances are for finding
the quantities and price I am looking for.

Thanks for your offers help with the other questions. I really appreciate it. 

All the best?

No prob Techtor. I really liked that most of the sites that you have
recommended this time are free and are even more specialized that the
general marketplaces I listed above.
