    looking for 6061T6 2"-1/2 OD 0.083" wall tube

    I'm looking for 6061T6 2"-1/2 OD 0.083" wall tube and can't find it. (0.065" or 0.125" wall
    only). I looked at aircraftspruce, wicks and onlinemetals. Have you some addresses ?

    Thanks in advance for help.

    I don't know. But might try looking for aluminum pipe instead of tube.
    Usually two thickness. Schedule 20 or 40 (or 80?)
    Pipe is sold by inner diameter, more or less...
    So 2" is 2.38" outside. https://www.onlinemetals.com/en/buy/aluminum-pipe

    I found https://www.tubeservice.com/ (from a thread on homebuiltairplanes.com)
    This reference is on their catalog.

    If you have another one, I appreciate your sharing it if you want.

    Thanks for your answers.

    Thanks for sharing but this tube is for wing spars, 0.083" wall is for strength, (0.035" and 0.065" wall is too thin, 0.125" is
    too heavy).2"-1/2 OD is for leading edge radius.
