Hi Gordon,


Neither of those you mentioned would be strong enough.   Just as an aside they now make Glass Fibre scaffold tube.... its as strong as the steel one apparently.


I only need a four foot length but if it was cheap enough I’d get a 6m length and sell the rest on e-bay.... I fear it’s well pricey though.


I have a two foot length here that was left over from making the GB3IH collinears 30 years ago, it was like hens teeth then.


Regards and thanks for reply

For interest's sake , t5here are two types of common hite water pipe , one is just pvc and very flexible ,

the other uses ceramic beads , and pvc? ........ but has a stiffer form .

If you could find the manufactures , they may make something to suit your application ?

Hi all,

Before I waste my time, and theirs, by phoning Engineered Composites (Radcom ad) for a price – does anyone know the rough price of 38mm GRP tube, 3mm wall thickness – comes in 6m lengths – and the carriage.  Don’t seem to find this info on their site.   I think it will be wholly expensive.
