    well i got back from the steel supplier and they don't carry 1.75" in anything heavier than .075 wall. its a good thing i didn't buy a 1.75" die for my bender and hope they had .120 wall in stock for a cage.

    any way i got 2' of 1 5/8" .134 wall tube for free because they did not have what i needed. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif
