    Melbourne Exhaust components (pipe etc)

    What is the current hotness in sourcing exhaust stuff in Melbourne. The old place i used to go to has gone bust (out near Airport West), and the other two places nearby refuse to sell tube etc.

    Need a bunch of stainless tube for tig practice etc.

    Where to use these days?

      Yeah, going to ask at Ace in Ringwood when i go past there this afternoon. But hoping for recommendations so im not chasing my tail for ages.

      Especially given that the two places i have asked so far have both been like 'nah, bring it in here and we will mig up something terrible and massively overcharge you for it because you said "stainless"'

          They have specials on their page from wrong orders etc - bought a shitload of 1" (fuck knows why, that's too small for anything) 90 degree bends from them for cheap to practice my TIG, never got around to the practice bit.

          Aliexpress might be worth a look if you don't mind waiting.

          I've got about a metre of 2.5" I can try to get to you, should have left it at a mate's place in thornbury, he didn't want it.

            If it's just for practicing on, google commercial kitchen manufacturers.

            They'll have heaps of offcuts of 25x25x1.2 and 31.8x31.8x1.2 304 square tube as well as 304 and 430 sheet offcuts that they will swap for beer.

            Boat canopy manufacturers will have 19.05 x 1.2 316 rounds but those guys are few and far between these days.

              I got my SS for practicing from a scrap metal recycler, $5 per KG. I got a mix of tube, it looks like it came out of a dismantled commercial kitchen.

              And if you are looking for mandrel bends and other exhaust parts, check out https://bestmufflers.com/ I just ordered a 10 pack of bends at a variety of angles, $120 or so delivered, pretty reasonable price.

                  Good idea on the commercial kitchen places, ill give them a go. In fact there is a scrap place down the road from work that has a few sinks hanging around.

                      filthiest work shop ever, but they are pretty good to deal with. They ahve done a few things for me and always well priced

                        exhausts must be the new hotness, got quoted $340 to replace a muffler with a hot dog, and fab a 2 foot tailpipe.

                          yea good blokes they don't rip people off. They used to be in west footscray even dirtier. Been to them (for nearly 20 years) for all my exhaust work when I can't be fucked.
