    Source for .875 x .875 x .125 U 6061-T6

    Anyone have a U.S. source for this U channel stock? Closest I have found so far is .875 x .875 bar, then turning 61% of it into chips. Even .875 x .875 x .125 wall square tube would be great - I can easily cut one side out to yield U channel.

    I have bought most of my tube from Tube Service in Phoenix, AZ, and some other "odd" sizes (where I didn't need 12-foot lengths) from onlinemetals.com. So I've been sourcing metal for a while - rather than just pointing me to a bunch of places to check - a pointer to someplace that definitely has either the U channel or the square tube would help a lot. Need 6061-T6, not the 6063 architectural stuff.

    Thanks everyone for looking. I'm guessing by the quantity of views now with no leads that this size just isn't done. No big deal. Can get .875 x .875 square bar pretty cheap & make lots of chips... The design only calls for about 65 inches of this shape...

    I had heard that Dillsburg closed last year. Any truth to that?

    As far as I know they ate still open. Live about 20 min from them.
