Anyone want 1.5" .25" wall DOM tubing near Houston?

I have to order at least 72 feet and I only need 25 or so. If I get some interested I will buy it and keep it in College Station. It will be about $7/ft. Delivery is extra..

Let me know.

7.00/ft!!! They give you a kiss and a reach around with that price?

You can get a 8' stick for 5.00/ft HERE


Your supplier should be able to compete with a on-line retailer if you buying whole sticks and more than one!

If you make a quick drive to dallas, you can get 20ft or less. I have about 30ft in the shop righ t now, I could part with a bit of it.

You can by exactly how many ft you need at Allied Iron in Belmont, CA. Kinda far for you but it sounds like it would be cheaper to have them ship it than buy your mininum.

don't need any DOM but if you wanna offset some of your costs and make some $$$$, there's a guy in college station tx that needs to be "visited by my friends Vinnie and Guido" if ya know what I mean. The focker ripped me off on some parts I bought off e-bay.

What was the guys username on Ebay?

How much is shipping on that $5.30/ft for 8 feet?

I get it cheaper than $7/ft but I am trying to account the storage,
possible interest on the credit card if people don't end up buying it, and my time to order, recieve, cut, store, and exchange it.

Your missing the point.

Steel goods are very common commodities and are used in every state. There is very little fluctuation in price from one region to the next.

If a online retailer in Portland sells it by the foot for 5.00, you should be able to get it for at least 20-25% less if your buying the whole stick or sticks.

Did you always cut your Economics 101 class?

His name is David Kirk. His e-bay name is CAPTDKIRK. He's been yanking my chain for so long (over 30 days) that I've missed my chance to leave unfavorable feedback on e-bay to warn others. He got me for $115 bucks. I'll p.m. you with more details. Thanks

Drive up to Austin, around $80.00 for 1, 20ft stick = 4per, you get a discount at around 500ft.
