    Preferrably aluminum and preferrably @3" x 1.75

    Should look like this.

    I don;t know if any of you guys work in machine shops but I need @ 4 feet of this stuff and am having a hard time knowing where to look. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    I bet that's going to be a bit more expensive than typical round tubing. Have you tried the machine shops in your area? If not, that would be my first choice, then maybe Google/Yahoo for "metal supplies" or metal fabricators/fabrication, etc.


    I would think any kind of fab shop might be able to help you out.

    Yeah I was going to check with them but I figured I would check with you guys first.

    I am either going to use one tube at 3.0 - 3.5 inches wide or two tubes in the dimensions that they have. But at $15 a foot I will be spending $150 to mount my tv plus the mount. But if it works, it'll be pimp.

    Max -

    Check with a local custom car exhaust shop. Those folks get some pretty exotic requests for exhaust systems for street racers.

    Well, I finally found a manufacturer that offers what I need but he wanted $150 for a 4' section of 3.5" x 1.5" x .120". I figured out in the meatime that section of broken geoprobe rod (1.5" o.d. and about 3/8" wall thickness will be plenty. Price is right anyway.
