Alro Steel.

Their closest location to you is probably Aurora -- not sure how close that might be... Almost all college campuses have machine shops as well. Just go there and ask. They will either direct you to a local supplier or just sell it to you direct.

Do you have a race car or steel fab shop in town? Ask there. Otherwise ask this guy completeoffroad.com he is in Dubuke.

Send a message via AIM to dperk Send a message via Yahoo to dperk
when I was looking for tube, I found a large supplier in Indy.

The name is Ryerson and they quoted me 3.50/ft for 1.5" .120 DOM. That was now a while ago and it's probalby cheaper currently. Apparently the separate their facilities towards certain products and their tube is mostly out of indy.

They also gave me the name of a local retailer in my area that gave me a great price too. They may give you the name of a local dealer who they sell a lot to.

I was referred to a local shop in the Quad Cities and wound up buying there. Was a little over $7/foot for 1.5"OD .25 wall. Thanks for the help everyone.
