Source for rigid (steel) tubing?

clg7067May 14, 2008

I have a 3/16" threaded rod that I bought from HD. I'd like to encase it in a steel tube - it's an axel - for strength. Any idea on where I can buy a steel tube with I.D. of no more than .25 inch? It's going to be less than 3 feet long. (Online sources are fine.)

I have ordered from the 3rd one before.

If you could use iron water pipe it mite be cheaper.

Wow, thanks! I already tried one of those, but both of the other 2 had something that I think will work. They each had the same tube, but the price at one place was 4 times the price at the other place.
