Copper from Home Depot works well. Cheap(ish) and easy to use. Made my first one that way.

The main problem is that i need aluminum so the end product can be given a matching anno.

Using copper or brass, would mean going with black duracoat, which im not sure if i want...

ask for 7/8" X .062" wall extruded 6061 tube at any metal supplier. Its about $20/ 20' length. If they don't have it they should easily be able to bring it in for you on their next order.

You can probably order online form metalsupermarkets, but you would pay a premium for shipping it.

an outlet of the metalsupermarket is my source. The shop had nothing suitable though... Either the walls to thick or the od too big... Was just hoping to get away from the whole ordering thing...


Found 7/8" x .058" wall, on ebay. Will that work? or too wide?

That will do just fine.

Why woudl you worry about ordering it? They only carry a relatively small amount of stock at each location. They have warehouses everywhere for the oddball stuff. There is nothing difficult about it, you just tell them what you want and how much and they bring it in from their warehouse. Its usually next day since they have shipments all the time. Plus you get exactly the amount you want ( 1',2' 17.5", 20' whatever) and you don't have to pay shipping. If you go to pick it up and its NOT what you ordered you can get it rectified right there.
