Where can I get strong 1.5 inch pipe

Found 26th Apr 2007
I need to fix a marquee in work, it got damaged in high wind the last time we used it. 3 of the legs are bent, they are 6 foot lengths of 1.5 inch pole, new legs from the company are 15 quid each, but surely I can get that size pipe from somewhere cheaper and cut it to length.
Copper pipe won't be strong enough, I thought that exhaust section might do the trick, but has anyone got any other bright ideas?

TIA, Chris

try a steel stockholder or any steel manufacturing companies locally.
I work for one so they should be in stock

Edit - Price actually seems reasonable to me anyway.
Mild Steel is approx £600/Tonne - expensive stuff.

Also, you will need to paint/galvanise it afterwards to protect it.

£15 sounds ok

Thanks for that, I've just phoned a local blacksnith/engineering company and I'm about to take him a sample to see if he's got anything in stock.
