Where to buy DOM tubing???
« on: July 15, 2009, 10:35:06 AM »
OK Where are all you guys getting your DOM tubing??? up here in oregon they want $8.xx per foot for 1 3/4" .250 wall DOM.... this seems outrageous to me and I always hear that its much cheaper down in cali...... if anyone has a good source for it in northern/central cali and its the right price I will drive down there and buy a large batch..... any help will be much appreciated!!! thanks in advance

I have called any steel dealer oregon has to offer..... not as many motorsports shops using it up here as there are down there is my guess... everyone up here has to order it too...

i was getting 1 3/4" .120 wall for like $4.25 a foot from a place in sac. and that was delivered. but .250 might just be pricy. i know that the place i get my tubing from it cost TWICE the price for 1" .188 as it did for 1.5" .120.
if it somthing they dont make alot they jack up the price

thats what i was thinking too thats prolly why its so much here is just cause its not very popular metal.... I guess i will just order it here and say to hell with it.... thanks for the input guys

1 3/4 .120 DOM runs about $5-$6 a foot here in Az. So $8-$9 for .250 seems about right. When i was buying 1.5 .095 4130 it was like $5 per ft. :yikes:
