    I’m working on building my parts list for a LowriderV2.  I’m having trouble finding what pipe or tube I need to look for. Can any one provide actual dimensions for the stainless?  OD and wall thickness please?  I can’t find anything that matches what I see called out in the BOM.

    1 inch outside diameter .065in wall thickness.  You won’t find that at lowes or home depot.  Need a metal supplier like metal supermarket or speedy metals.

    Thanks, that’s the numbers I was wanting to confirm.  What about lengths for a full 4×8 build?  2x 4′ for the Y gantry, and 4x 1′ for the Z ?

    A couple inches over 5 foot for the long tubes.  Mine are that size and I get about an inch either side of a 4X8 sheet.

    Use the calculator to be sure on the size though. It’s a lot easier to cut them down from being too long than it is to cut them up from being too short.

    So two 8′ sticks would work then I guess.  Thanks guys
