[Source] Rectangular tubing


#1

Friends-- Does anyone know of a source for rectangular tubing? I have
a design in mind that would be much simpler with such, if it is
available. I have flexibility as to size. It would not be
cost-effective to make my own. Thanks!

Here is a site that does have rectangular silver tubing:

http://www.atwall.com/wave.html

This is for microwave wave guides, but they do list some small
sizes.

Hoover and Strong might have some but I can not get their site to
load beyond the logo.

One of the first places to look for tubing is www.smallparts.com but
they probably don’t have precious metals. You can lose days in the
most enjoyable way looking at their catalog, however, so request or
download one even if they don’t have just the tubing you want!

Hello Noel, Stuller carries square and oval 14KY tubing. Rio
carries square sterling tubing. Haven’t seen rectangular. If no
one has a source for the rectangular tubing, you might combine 2
pieces of the square tubing to make your rectangular tube. Good
luck! Judy in Kansas

Friends–

Thanks to those who responded so promptly to my inquiry.
Metalliferous does carry some rectangular tubing, though it is not
in their catalog yet. Atwall does as well–I’ve emailed them for
more detail, though they seem to have a rather large minimum order
(25’?) which, if applicable, would be more than I could use in a
couple of lifetimes. One way or the other, I should be able to work
something out.
