Hmmm ... Round tubing is usually sized according to the outside diameter, not the inside, and on top of that, 2.25" with that wall thickness appears to be non standard.

Found some 2.25 OD (not ID) and not that wall thickness

What's it for? If it's a one-off, you may be stuck having to machine it to size or substitute another size. If it's a big quantity, you can extrude any size, but the tooling will be expensive and I don't know if you can do wall that thin. That wall thickness will probably be formed and welded ... and you could always fabricate that yourself from sheet, too.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

this is where my company buys all the raw materials for our aircrafts. they have several different alloys. I didn't see anything in the size you were asking, but it you call, they might be able to do a special order.
