    Punched square tubing

    Let's help each other out and state what the tubing was called and the price you paid per foot. I know I can get it from McMaster but want other sources.
    Thanks!!

    Thumbs up Perforated Tubing

    Local True Value: "peforated tubing" comes in 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" demension and costs $31.00 for 8'. Hard to swallow at that price. Went to county highway shop and asked for damaged perforated square tubing. Gave me all I wanted (2"x2" demension) from damaged street signs and such. Best deal going ....free!!

    Here's where I get mine. You can buy it by the inch if you want. TYD in the lengths you want or buy it pre-cut in different lengths

    The stuff I bought at Lowes went by the name of Perf-Steel and had a label with SteelWorks on it.
    A four foot piece was $15.97 for 1.5" x 1.5"
    The 1.25 was just a bit cheaper, around $13.00.
    PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE RISING COST IN AMMO PRICES I WILL NO LONGER BE FIRING A WARNING SHOT.

    Lowe's has that stuff?! I have been to Home Depot and Lowe's and a couple steel companies within an hour of me and noone seems to know what "perf-steel" or "punched-steel" tubing is or where to find some...

    I will have to order some in I guess... I have been holding off finishing my homemade "coil-spring compressor" till I could find some of this to add for quick length adjustments... Thanks guys.
    Hmmm... 335fps with a 32" a-a bow with a 7"bh? Tha's a smokin'! I won't complain for getting 342 out of it either! Bowtech Experience!
