I was ordering a couple of things from Zoro, came just shy of the £20 break for free delivery so I thought I'd bung in a length of 6mm silver steel.
333mm £6.20, 1000mm £3.89, 2000mm £15.19 all inc VAT. Think I know which length I'll go for...
Similar anomalies for other diameters.
Just thought it was worth mention in case anyone else is looking for silver steel.

I would say it is a typo so 1000mm will cost you 13.89 £

Robin, 333mm is a pack of 5.
Some smaller sizes are for packs of 25.

The different cost are:
333mm is £3.72/m
1000mm is £3.89/m
2000mm is £7.60/m
If I was buying, I think I might first decide on the length I need for the job, and if I wanted some stock before ordering. The one metre length looks like the best value if just needed for stock (if more than a 333mm length might be needed and less waste if needing multiple short lengths). I would also check out other suppliers, too.
Which option did you go for?

Did the cost include postage as that would explain why the 2m length is costly. Even if not packaging to keep it straight will have been included in the pricing.

Thanks - I just looked at the 'headline' prices and missed that .
