Empty Steel or Aluminium telescope tube ~300mm or larger

I'm wondering if anyone has an unwanted Steel, Aluminium or perhaps even fibreglass empty telescope tube. I need something larger than around 290-300mm in internal diameter. Possibly from a 10 (probably ideal as JUST large enough) or 12 inch Dob or similar. and preferably in Victoria/Melbourne-ish

Please PM if you have one with any details

Thanks and Best
JA

Finding one of those may prove difficult JA, however when i needed something like that i went to a sheet metal place and they rolled one for me in any thickness/diameter, aluminum, steel or copper, and was cut to length as well.
Only a thought, it was a long time ago and i know they will still do this for you but the cost escapes me but i recall however it was reasonably for what i wanted.

I tried PM'ing you yesterday over another matter, and was informed you had insufficient space to accept any more PM's.
What length tube do you need?

Thanks Leon. I wanted to try to avoid sheet metal with the seam, but may have to fall back there if I can't find a seamless tube.

Thanks and Best

Hi Gary,
Sorry my PM was full. It's now cleared somewhat. I would like to get something in the vicinity of 900 to 1000mm minimum, but would take longer.

Thanks and Best
