I am looking for some 7/8th outer diameter stainless or aluminum tubing to rebuild a bimini that got damaged in a rollover.

I know where the specialty wood shop is, and the specialty bolt shop, but I can't think of any local source (Austin, Texas) that would carry this except for West Marine through special order.

Does anyone know where I might check?

Thanks

Tom

I would think that a local metal fabrication shop could either order it in for you or direct you. My local shop orders stainless and aluminum for me. David

I have never tried this, but what about aluminum electrical conduit?

I'm not sure what type of aluminum they use for electrical conduit. I suppose I could try it and see. All the conduit I see at home despot and lows is steel.
