After I get back from a ski trip, I'm going to check out a pseudo-local steel supplier (80 miles away) to look for my two main rails. Ordering a pair of 3.00 x 0.12" wall tubes 8' long would cost me $75 each plus $36 shipping. http://www.metalsdepot.com


I believe Online Metals is cheaper, even with it delivered, just for the steel though:

Metals Depot: 8' of 1 OD x .120 wall x .760 ID, $54.08
Online Metals: 8' of 1" OD x 0.12" WALL x 0.76" ID A513 TYPE 5 TUBE, $29.42.


When I bought 1.5 OD X .095 wall DOM for a rollcage about a year ago, Online Metals was cheaper than Metals Depot. Online Metals was actually cheaper -with delivery!- than the local Fab shop I'd bought square tubing from.
