Source for Speedrail

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I'm looking to start putting my new combo stands to good use, and am interested in building some standard goal posts, and for constructing my first menace arms.


However, I live in a small place (Eugene, OR), and am having a hard time laying my hands on some speedrail (or more specifically, 1.25", 6061 T6 extruded aluminum pipe). I hear this is the lightest/strongest/cheapest way to go.


I'm sure if I was down in L.A. I could get some pretty cheap. The online options all seem pretty expensive. For those of you in smaller markets, how have you gotten your hands on the pipe?

I tend to look at general metal stockists rather than specifically at film and TV resources. When I built an 8x8 butterfly frame I simply bought one-inch corner clamps on eBay, and one-inch tube from a place that also sells sheet, plate, box section, etc.


You probably want the local version of this. It works out to about US$1/foot, plus tax and delivery.
