    I am trying to buy 5 lengths of 6061-T6 Anodized Aluminum tubing 2.25 OD x .049" wall x 12'. It is for a big DIY project with a lot of parts but this one has been very very difficult. Some people have said they had it but didn't wanted to sell it or wanted to sell something else or couldn't ship or found that they were mistaken. I have heard every excuse from global warming to Trump's ban on Aluminum.
    If you could help me or direct me to some one that could, I would very much appreciate it.

    Thanks. They make a very nice 2.00 x .062" x 20' 6061-T6 Aluminum tubing but I can modify my project enough to use it.

    Try searching glazing and curtainwall contractors in your area and ask them where they get their materials. Ryerson is one source. There is one in Wallingford, CT 203-269-8744

    I like Ryerson but they only went go up to 2 in tubing.
    When I asked for 6061-T6 Anodized Aluminum tubing 2.25 OD x .049" wall x 12' they couldn't help.
