where to buy: *threaded* aluminium pipe/fittings Answered

Hello everyone! I have been searching the web for a good source of aluminium pipe (between 1" and 2" thick) with threaded endings and matching fittings. Can anyone suggest a good source? Searching the instructables forums I read about www.simplifiedbuilding.com, but they don't seem to have threaded fittings (only of a slip-on, use-a-set-screw kind). Any suggestion greatly appreciated! Happy '09! James

Try www.mcmastercarr.com This is the web page of a large industrial supply house. They carry aluminum pipe in threaded and plain ends and threaded fittings. You probably want schedule 40 pipe. Schedule 10 is too light to thread and schedule 80 is for higher pressures.

Try threading them yourself. The tools to do it aren't *that* expensive

I would love to have the necessary tools and equipment, but unfortunately I am not able to afford them and I only engage in very simple occasional projects... But thank you for the idea. Best James
