  • Finding 1 ľ inch pipe in the UK?

    Iím looking for somewhere to buy Speedrail, 1 ľ inch scheduled 40 aluminium pipe here in the UK or if not the EU. Itís been a struggle and as of yet Iíve had no success, itís not something that the usual metal suppliers have in stock and I donít know what the cost of ordering from the US will be but I doubt itís pretty.

    Has anyone sourced any of this pipe here in the UK or know of somewhere they think I could try?

    You can also use electrical conduit pipe as speed rail. I have a speed rail dolly and I'm currently using 1 1/4" conduit I bought from a home improvement store. Try anyone that sells electrical conduit.

      Hi, thanks for the help. In the UK it’s all metric and this is a dolly where making so we want it to run on a standard dimensioned rail and 1 ľ is just the most common one found out there. So it can work on other truss and rail systems from different companies and integrate with standard grip clamps and the such.

        Yes I knew you'd be dealing with metric measurement and what was available. I worked over in Europe for a 10 year span and I'd take my speed rail dolly with me and we'd buy local pipe. I don't know what metric sizes you can in the UK, anything close to 32mm? I also made my dolly from scratch and it was a little forgiving on metric rail size vs US.

          Just look up the metric equivalents it exists, in Canada we call it by imperial size because of American product, but will be marked metric as well.

            Metric tube will be in decimal points, so 40mm which is too far out.
