Ying Jaleaum Is A Steel Distributor In Pak Chong – Just About Every Steel Section You Could Need

I never cease to be amazed by the variety of steel sections sections available at the Ying Jaleaum steel shop in Pak Chong.

It’s best to write a list of what you want before you go because trying to decide on the spot is a bit daunting and the guys there want to start cutting your steel straight away.

  • Hi Alan.
    I have been watching the video of the steel supplier. Very impressed. As you say a shopping list is a must. Plus some spare cash to buy the stuff that you see that you just must have. It looks like you should be able to build the traction engine from the material available there. If I can get up to Pakchon in December I will buy myself a few Christmas presents. I also hope to visit the E.A.T. restaurant.
    I am still looking for aluminium plate of half inch thick?
    I will be in touch later Hope the steam engine is progressing.

    • Hi George, good to hear from you again.

      This Ying Jaleaum is the main steel stockist in Pakchong (Pak Chong). There are more photos here:-

      I have just found another one that seems to be new. A warehouse with all the steel neatly stored in an orderly fashion on racks – unlike Ying Jaleaum which is very untidy. I’ll take some photos of the new one, I haven’t been inside yet.

      There is another metals stockist in Pakchong (Pak Chong). The stock mainly stainless steel, brass, bronze and cast iron. It’s called “Pakchong See La Borgaan” and there’s a photo of the outside of the shop on the Mystery Shopping In Thailand Post.

      I’ve got dozens of photos and some movies of the inside of the shop showing the metals they have for sale. Must post them on the website promptly!

      Best Regards

      Alan Brown
