Hi All
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I'm looking fo a small piece of aluminiun tube/bar, it needs to be 2.5" OD and if tube a wall thickness of around 5mm, I only need around 3" length to make a carb spacer, tried a lot of stockists and they want to sell me great big lengths.
Cheers for any help.

Hiya
have you tried local engineering companies rather than stockists? They may have an offcut, but will probably be bar stock. Have you got anyone to machine it for you?
Cheers

Shame, I have a workshop with lathe etc and could probably get material for you, but that's back home on East coast, and I am here contracting in S.Wales. Not much help really:(
