I'm looking for a 6-8' stick of 3" square aluminum tubing 1/8-3/16" walls for a trailer project I'm working on. I can find it on line but would be nice to pick some up locally, especially if perhaps a scrap piece for less.

Would appreciate any sources that folks might know of.

Check Lowes. They have a big assortment of this stuff.

Also check your local recycling centers. They tend to put to the side large aluminum tubing pieces.

IM a bit late seeing this but if you ever need aluminum stock T&C metals on the W side is the place to go. I have been buying stock to turn on my lathe for 15yrs or so. Its a warehouse but they sell direct to the public.

I'm finding the metal suppliers only sell 20' sticks, about 12' more than I need. I found a alum fence supplier that has a post that fits my needs and will likely just get one of those. Same thickness and aluminum grade I'm looking for, but painted black. Will just have a funny looking trailer or have to paint the rest. Wow, just checked out Alro Metals and they were $20 more for the 8' I need than T&C was for 20' minimum purchase.

Any family owned aluminum fabricators around? I used to always order steel and aluminum from a small shop and the orders helped them with minimum monthly purchasing. Haven't bought anything in quite a while
