does any one have any idea what type of suppler might carry this.I'm in the
Baltimore/Washington area so I'm not asking for a company name ,but would
take if you got one.

You should be able to find a distributor in your yellow pages. You'll
probably need to cut down a stock 25' tube. It'll help you to know
diameter, wall thickness, alloy, and temper - but if you don't have a
good idea what you're after, the distributor should be able to provide
I order aluminum stock from TW Metals in KC, which probably isn't
useful info for your location.

Look for a nonferrous metals distributor.
What alloy, OD, ID and or wall thickness?
Do you need a contiguous piece or can you sleeve two (2), 8 ft lengths
Durett-Sheppard in the Highlandtown/Dundalk area of Baltimore would be
a good start. 410 633 6800. If they don't have it they can likely tell
you who does.
You don;t say what diameter or wall thickness you want, but if you
consider steel, than think about EMT or pipe. Both are available in 20
ft lengths from their respective suppliers.
No dumb questions, just dumb answers.

Not having specifics on the diameter you might look into:
They've been useful to Amateur Telescope Makers in the past and don't
seem to mind "minor" orders.
