I post this here hoping someone has more 'China experience' than me,
because i tried everything I know, I can't find a a supplier willing to sell less than a ton of Aluminum.
I am trying to find material to build a foldable kayak, plans
if anyone interested the site is not easy to follow, but it's the most
famous for home builders, unless you read German(I don't).
I tried Alibaba, suppliers only do wholesale. I found a local steel
market here in Kunming, but they don't have any Aluminum pipe. I also
found a local Industrial market, they have all sorts of tools and
material, but no one has any practical use for Aluminum pipe, so they
don't stock any. I only found square pipe used for balcony rails.
I only need about 20 meters of different diameters, 6063 grade is great,
but 6061 will also work. Maybe someone here knows a factory near them,
or has more contacts than me?
Check pics, see what i'm trying to build.
Any help appreciated.
