DIY part sources

Post by DeltaGeorge » Mon Apr 30, 2018 5:15 pm

Does anyone know of any good sources for buying parts to make their own stainless steel device?

Specifically 0.080" wall thickness 1/4" ID Stainless steel tubing.

I've found my size rings and post material.

I can weld aluminum at home so stainless should be easy to learn...

A lot of stuff can be found in the McMaster-Carr catalog:

The tubing area:

Note that both 304 and 316 are generally both fine for body contact, but 316 is considered to be a nicer grade.
