I have been searching the forums but it does not seem to be a problem for anybody else. I have checked HD and one of the big plumbing suppliers. HD did not have it, the plumbing supply house sells it based on ID, not OD. I am probably missing something. There has to be a place to buy this stuff. Please help me.September 11, 2019 at 11:22 am #113415

One I checked with to give me a sense of stainless pipe sources was the local marina. They have a supplier for their deck tubing and gave me a sense of cost. The other place was online looking for stainless shower rods. I thought about going with them, but cost and ease left me with the 3/4″ EMT.

In one of the other posts, I found that “stainless steel round tube” is a better search term. ISo far I found a place locally that sells 1″ for $125 per 20-foot piece. That seems to be more than what I expected. Does that sound like a good average?September 11, 2019 at 2:55 pm #113474
I just ordered 20′ of 1″ OD 16 Gauge (.065 in) welded stainless steel 304 tubing for $3.50/foot from a local welding/metal shop. Initially, I made the mistake of asking for stainless steel pipe instead of stainless steel tubing, and after some confusing dialog with the salesman, I was informed that pipe is measured by the inner diameter and tubing is measured by the outer diameter. Once I got the nomenclature right, I was able to place my order without any issues.
I checked online prices (Amazon, Grainger, specialty metal suppliers, etc) and shipping usually drives the cost up.
