Jenkins Steel Ltd are a family based Engineering Steels Stockholder based in Cramlington, Northumberland UK

We have 20 years of experience in the stockholding & sourcing of Engineering Bar both Ferrous & Non Ferrous.

All our material has full certification.

We share a warehouse with our sister company Roles Precision Contractors Ltd who are a very successful Precision Engineering Company (more information on our front page.)

Our new website is designed to make buying Steel an easy and pain free process. With just a few clicks you can purchase what you require and have it delivered direct to your door, anywhere in the UK, residential or business.

We really are here for you whether you’re a large or small business, model engineer or if you require a bit of steel for a project we are here to help.

On the back of our successful eBay store we decided to create an ecommerce store which we hope will be an ‘easy to use’ tool for all your steel purchasing.

Very interesting and 5% is welcome but it is possible you are infringing policy by advertising. If not you are very welcome.  :Doh:

I found it a useful and appropriate advert for members here in the UK.

At least they put it in the correct category and made a custom coupon code.  Seems some human effort went into it.

Biggles - actually I don't think there's any problem at all - not only is it welcome but it is in the forum section "Vendor specials and announcements" whose rubric describes it as a place for vendors and members to post sales, coupon codes and announcements (my emphasis); and to quote from Eric's (forum owner's) first message in this section
This board is for vendors or members who have a service or item that will benefit members of this forum. Sales information, product announcements and the like should go here........

I only wish there wasn't the Irish Sea betwixt them and me!

No need for apologies... Keen eyes are what keeps this place clean.

I don't mind adverts in this part of the forum, as long as it directly benefits the members and isn't abused.

Let me know when you can post to France!

Post by: jenkinssteel on March 20, 2017, 07:45:33 AM
Hi Matthew, yes we can ship to France but cost depends on the dimensions of the parcel(s) because most couriers calculate the postage based on volumetric weight.
If the dimensions fit into there criteria we can deliver 1 parcel up to 30 kgs and the extra cost per parcel would be £9.00.
Can I just ask if you know specifically what you require to contact me first and I can then work out the cost for you. Hope this is ok?

Thanks
David

Silver Steel ?

Post by: jenkinssteel on March 30, 2017, 09:39:47 AM
Unfortunately we're not stocking silver steel yet but we're always looking to add different products so will certainly look into it. In the meantime if there are certain sizes that you purchase regularly I can certainly look into this for you ?
Thanks

Strange... It worked fine for me just a minute ago.
Title: Re: Online Metal Store
Post by: Bluechip on April 20, 2017, 03:19:43 AM
I have no problems with it ???  :scratch: ( Linux / Firefox here )

Site seems fine to me.

On another note, I'm not sure what market the company is aiming for.

There does not seem to be any bar of sub 12mm dia. which I would think is what a lot of folk here mainly use.

Unless it's there and I can't find it ?

Yes working OK for me - perhaps another browser issue - what are you using Symon ?
Title: Re: Online Metal Store
Post by: PekkaNF on April 20, 2017, 05:15:04 AM
Windows 7 and Firefox 41.0.2 working out ok.

Selection looks good to me. Reasonable price milled/ground flat stock is something I buy from time to time. And centerless ground round stock too. But you can't have it all.

Hi Symon

I've checked the website and to be honest I found a few errors dependant on what browser I used but I believe I have now fixed them. The link that you tried will not work now as it has been renamed but uptil now everything seems to be working ok now. The new link to that product category is https://jenkinssteelonlinemetal.co.uk/product-category/mild-steel-black/ hopefully this will now work for you but please let me know if you have anymore issues.

Thanks
David
