i'm guessing prop loop?
maybe try your local steel fabrication shops,
hopefully they'll bandsaw some 'rings' off a length of tube for beer money.

i probably have 6" stainless tube in the shed, not sure what thickness, is it critical? do you need to weld it if so stainless probably wont work.

It may end up being welded , but I have options on how to attach other parts. Re the thickness it needs to be strong enough not crush when bolted beteen two other plates as it's going to be a container hence 1.6 upwards.

i cant see it crushing unless you intend to put a cheiftan tank on top of it:D. i can cut it and machine the ends if necessary.
