Metal for Cyr Wheels

Circus/Cyr Wheel

I just ordered some metal from a local place to make another cyr wheel / roue cyr; it used to be Metal Supermarkets but now is Guerrilla Metals. I ordered 2 20′ pieces of 1.5″ OD (outer diameter) tubing with 1/8″ thick sidewall, 6061 aluminum tubing. And 12′ of 1 1/4″ OD by 3/16″ sidewall DOM (cold rolled steel). Enough for two cyr wheels, total price: $321.73. So, a bit over $160 per wheel for the metal alone. I ordered fasteners from Amazon: Flat Socket Head Screw 18-8 Stainless Steel – 5/16″-18 x 3/4″ Qty-25– $10 including shipping; I have found them cheaper, but not when you factor in shipping. You need 20 per wheel.
