    Thanks! Been using aircraft spruce, but the prices seemed high as of late. The .50 per foot of 1.125 through Wicks has got to be a typo.

    Not a typo, they had a much broader array of tubing available for $.50 per foot earlier in the year, I loaded up for general projects..

    Wicks and AS are great options for smaller QTY regardless of where in the country you are buying from. That said, Pennsylvania Steel might be a decent option for you.

    Wicks is in IL, so fairly regional, and AS ships from CA, IL, GA and in some cases Ontario, so all within normal freight distribution to PA.
