Stainless Steel tubing in DC/MD/VA area?

I need to get a couple of 30 ft, 1.75 in tubing. Most web retailers have a max of 8 ft. I know that to move it to the shop will be a challenge but don't want to weld shorter pieces.

Thanks,
V49

Just a reminder that tubing is very different from pipe. Tubing has much thinner walls, IIRC. Also, pipe measurements aren't implied in the name. (For instance, 1.25" pipe has an outer diamerter of 1.66".)

Good luck on your search. If you come across 1.25" stainless pipe (12 feet long. 1.660" O.D.), please let me know.

Regards,
Brad

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

You can call yard metals (631) 232-1600 there a big company with a lot of branches as shiping is going to be a BIG factor in the price if you cant pick it up and car top it

There are many other dealers online if you google SS tube

I also deal with a place called Perrigo in CT but he gets me full cases from the mill

Marmon/Kestone in Delaware has 20 ft lenght.... next question - making an arch probably 1.5 tube with 1.25 cross members.

What type of SS 304 or 316?
Welded or Seamless?
Thickness .12, .25 or thicker?

I already have an arch, the new arch will carry a davits, wind generator, a tv dish antenna and solar panels.

The Seamless price will be INSANE and not really needed unless you were doing some type of forming (we roll the ends on some tubes so we need Seamless)

316 is going to do better in saltwater but a lot of 304 does get used as to wall .120 is some thick stuff and an you getting a bit beyond seat of the pants stuff

For example i build bicycles BUT the tube sets are sold with rider weights in mind and all the deep thinking is allready done


Also if you can work with 1.5" OD tube it opens a lot of premade 45 and 90 degree fittings as well as being a common size to be able to take the parts to a place with that does orbital welding and get a perfect part welded
