I bought the struts at my local Hobby Store. They are the 1/2" choice and cost about $6.00 for three feet. THey had a label on them but I can't remember what it said, possibly K&S, or something like that.

The combination of that strut, that diameter of Carbon fiber tube and that diameter dowel produced a nice "firm fit" that had to be tapped into place in the strut. Once everything was lined up, I shot thin CA all the way down the strut, now it is one solid piece. Very strong.

If you ever need an odd shape of aluminum, steel, brass or what ever, this place has it all:

http://www.speedymetals.com/

http://www.speedymetals.com/pc-4551-...-aluminum.aspx

Plus it also describes those aluminum numbers such as 6061, 7075 and so on.

Several years ago I bought two pieces of steel rectangular tubing from there, 6 by 8 inches by 24 inches long, with a 3/8 wall. That was for a milling machine project.
