I just talked with his wife over the phone yesterday and received an email from him this morning as I'm getting ready to build up a new frame for my rig. Best
T's for $5.50/ea
Pipe is $2.90/ft mill 6061-t6 and comes in 165" lengths
he said he also has acid washed pipe with clear coat for $3.50/ft
I guess he's up near Greeley, so you could pick up the garb when you're ready. I'm hoping to get my frame penciled out this weekend and then get my materials probably next week, so I'll post if something doesn't go clean.
also, just for anyone else scouring the web for fittings on the cheap,
Grainer has a large assortment of hollaender fittings, but McMaster-Carr has structural fittings for a suprisingly reasonable price. McMaster also has 3D models that you could import into your cad system, or you can download a .pdf that'll let you rotate things around with your mouse if you want to.
Awesomely, the 30$ oar tower mounts in 1.5IPS that are sold by DRE, AAA and RBR are only 13$ at McMaster.com
