I might have some, have to check diameter. I know I have 2", 4" and 6", I may have gotten 3" at some point. It is extruded though, not sure if that matters for what you're doing. Let me know and I'll check when I get home.

Try Prospect Plastics. They should sell a piece.

I seen on there website it says Extruded Tube comes in 72" lengths........I will have to give them a call.......
Thanks Treeman

I have a piece of 3" extruded, exactly 6" long. ;) It doesn't look 1/4" thick though, more like 1/8th. I'm not likely to use it so you're welcome to it.

TitaniuIVI,
Not sure if they have the plastic nuts and bolts stuff, US Plastics does though, thats where I got mine.

bckane,
I wasn't sure if you meant me or someone else in regards to meetings, but I haven't yet. I'd like to but things are a little hectic lately.
