I'll throw my hat into a 4 year old thread.... S&S mills or Shaw has been who I dealt with and they were very accommodating...By the way, unless you're looking for seconds, there is no reason to drive to Dalton. The guys who buy off goods in Dalton do operate on pretty thin margins, but it's along ass way to drive to get material with no warranty. Dalton is mostly internet sales now, anyway. The Dalton based off goods boom ended a long time ago. Now, the mills send a daily off goods list to any dealer in the country who wants them. That crap used to stay in Dalton, but now they'll sell it to whomever. I get an email every day from Mohawk with off goods for sale. If you want first quality material, nobody in Dalton buys any better than anyone else.
