2" Diameter X .050 Wall Tubing - Order by the Foot

$29.00
Shipping calculated at checkout.
  • Barcode:

Top quality 2" O.D. X .050 wall tubing are available in various material and finish.

Prices per foot are listed below for a quick cost comparison. Shipping for 8 foot or longer material costs extra. Tubing can be cut to size or cut down for UPS shipping.

Additional cutting charges may apply pending on quantities and linear footage.  Please call with orders more than 10 cuts.

One of the most frequent questions we get from customers is “What’s the difference between pipe and tube”? Although pipes and tubes may look similar, they are in fact quite different in nomenclature and sizing. Remember that pipes and tubes are rarely interchangeable. 

Pipes are only provided with an inside (nominal) diameter and a “schedule” (which means the wall thickness). There’s an easy way to remember this: since pipe is used to transfer fluids or gas, the size of the opening through which the fluids or gas can pass through is probably more important to you than the outer dimensions of the pipe. Tube measurements, on the other hand, are provided as an outside diameter and set ranges of wall thickness. 

Only pipes are pressure rated and intended to be used for the transference of fluids or gas. Tubes, on the other hand, are used in structural applications. Strength-wise, tube is stronger than pipe.

Fittings with inserts are made to fit with .050" wall tubing. They do not fit with pipes. When you purchase flush fittings without tubing, please measure your tubing for OUTSIDE diameter and wall thickness to ensure material will fit together.

Bought to use as a shower rod. This thing is never coming down, goodbye crappy tension rod. Very solid material and bright chrome color.

Product satisfaction

With some digging we found what we were looking for. We will use the 1/2” s/s tubing as stand-offs to string filiment over our dinghy on the boat deck to prevent birds from landing.

Excellent product and service

I needed a bar rail of 56 inches and contacted TDI to see if they could provide a custom size rail at the same price as a standard 5 foot rail. They did—at no extra cost— and fulfilled my order for a rail, support brackets and rail caps within just a few days. I immediately installed it and it looks great!

the closest to what I need.

This tube is the correct outer diameter but I wish I could find it with a thinner wall. Otherwise, it is the closest to what I need. By cutting it into 2 1/2 inch lengths, I am using this tube to make miniature kaleidoscopes.
