    Default Sourcing tubing

    Hi folks, I'm new here and working on building my first frame. For that I'm using tubing that came along with the used equipment I bought.

    I'm looking at purchasing tubes for the next build though, and it seems that most places are sold out of most options in the butted steel category. I searched around to see if there was already a thread on this but couldn't find anything. Am I missing something or is everywhere just sold out? Any recommendations for places to buy?

    I have some tubing sets I got from Framemakers supply during the 5 minutes I was trying to get into frame building. I'll see if I can get a clear id on what I have and get back to you via pm.

    Given the last couple of years of disruption and the long term shift by the masses from high grade steel what is the surprise? Many here and elsewhere have tubing stocks from years of doing this stuff. My stash is usually a few frames worth. I hope guido's offer works out. Andy
