I am living in europe and there is no exact 1“ OD 0.035“ thick aluminium tube available. But I have found a 25mm OD 1mm thick tube. Will it be sufficient as 25.4mm is 1“ and 0.035“ is 0.889mm?
Is it a tight fit using the original one?
Thanks in advance.
Maybe taking the 25mm tube with the biggest tolerance at home depo and giving it several layers of paint will do the trick.
25mm might be a tiny bit loose in the bearings. I don't know where is Europe to get 1" tube, hopefully someone else on the forum has a source in Europe. I wonder if you can find a tube a little larger and find someone with a lathe to turn it down.
