Square Tube

Postby Harry » Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:13 am

Hi! Building a Hoverflypro and finding it hard to get the right materials in Cape Town for frame construction. Got some square tubing 20mm X 1.5mm but its a little heavy having a 1.5mm wall thickness.

Hi Harry

Welcome to the forum! If you have any comments or suggestions for improving it, dont hesitate to shout :)

I spent quite some time looking for aluminium tubing. I found conways aluminium profiling to have the best range.

They have a cape town branch.
Their number is: 021 528 1100
or http://www.conways.co.za

Heres a link to a pdf of all their standard profiles: http://www.conways.co.za/standard_catalogue.pdf

Hope this helps :)
