DOM weight

Might sound stupid, but does anyone know where I can find a calculator to figure out the weight of DOM tubing?
Or better yet, looking for the weight of a 1 foot section of 1.50 x .120 wall DOM tube and 1 foot section fo 1.75 x .120 wall DOM tube.

I tried weighing a 4 foot section using a fish scale and got about 8 pounds, looking for a more accurate number though.

Look for the "machinists handbook" online. I think there is one out there.

it has all sorts of this kind of info. Including what kind of thickness you need for taping the insides of DOM for heims and such

Yep, as does chromoly, which is a very common, but very major misconception.


Online metals has some really useful info on their site http://www.onlinemetals.com/calculator.cfm
