I need to securely mount a 2" diameter tube to a flat surface. I first thought of removing some material in areas and welding in a flat piece but wasn't too sure that I could get all 6 flat mounting surfaces in the same plane. So after some internet searching, I thought of having a tube fabricated. It would need to look like this:
The tube thickness can vary, up to say .125", but the other dimensions need to be close to those listed. The length that I need is 72" but would be willing to get more if there is a minimum length of a single tube (16-20'). It would have to be cut though for easy shipping. Finally, I'd like it to be nickle plated.
Anybody do this kind of work, know of someone who does or have a shop that does this nearby? Since I'm not too familiar with this process so I don't know if companies require that I buy a truckload or I can just have one tube made. I also don't want to spend a truckload of money.
