Trying to buy a couple pieces of 7/8" SS tubing 3" long....

Tried Taco, Sailrite, West..... "out of stock" or significant increase in prices due to shortage..

I found "welded" reasonable priced but concerned if the weld seam is visible???

I assume welded as opposed to seamless means the seam may clearly visible and unsightly maybe for a commercial application????


WTF...

Try Havasu Iron and Metal. If that doesn’t work out, and you can make it work, i have about 4’ of 1” dom 314 stainless

you won't notice it once sanded down. Try AceStainless, JMD tubes, and Burns Stainless.
