Where are you guys buying your tube (prefer westside) and what have you been paying lately for 2" .250 wall DOM?

Alro can order it for you but it's costly. Central steel does not carry DOM last time I checked.

Did you check Genzink Steel in Holland? I don't know how they are price wise but it's worth checking.

You could try White Eagle Steel in Spring Lake, MI as well :616-847-9950

The more you buy, the better the deal with them, but they may have a chunk of drop steel there you could get cheap......

2 x .250 is a size alro in Kalamazoo may have on the drop shelf. It's a few bucks a pound, so worth it.
