hi all, where i live 38mm (1,5inch) tubes are available only from one company, 300km far. the ready available are 35 or 40mm, 1.5 thick.
i think 40mm is the better choice... but better ask for other opinions.
thanks,
David

We are metric here so I had the same "problem".

I used 40mm in place of 1.5". It worked fine. I think my thickness was 1.6mm so 1.5mm will be fine.

I use the heavier 40*40*2mm, but that's because I buy that in full lengts of 6m (need a lot of that for the new workbench in the workshop of Chaos)
