Question 1" OD Swaged/sweged end aluminum tubing.

I am in the process of preparing for a full rebuild of a CM-1100.

I have being going to various tubing suppliers and am not have any success in locating the product.
The basic problem is that if I purchase 12 foot lengths of 6061-T6 or any tubing of that length the shipping pops up to over 125.00.
8' falls under the bump freight charges as well.

The booms on the 1100 are just over 11 feet long. The CM-1160A is long and uses swaged tubing.
So my plan to save on the shipping is to use 6' swaged tubing and oppose the swaged ends. It would give a little over 2 foot offset which may be enough to prevent any sagging.

Or if the supplier would cut the maximum length allowed that would not require freight. Which would be just under 8 foot that would be even better as the off set between the swages would increase by quite a bit.

Does anybody have any links to suppliers that specifically sell swaged aluminum tubing?

My other option would be sleeving 1" ID over 1" OD. The tolerances would need to be tight though.

Thank guys.

If you can not measure it, you can not improve it.

Hey Rabbit.
Hope you are doing well.

Yes I have been on that site. Unfortunately they dont seem to have the swaged end.
They are on the list for the sleeving alternative.
