    Found this place for aluminum tubing and solid aluminum.

    You might find it interesting if you are into building antennas.

    You will be hard pressed to beat DX Engineering if your requirement is telescoping sections (0.058" wall).

    Lengths over 72" are subject to shipping surcharge. UPS can handle up to 96". Longer than that must go via another carrier, and that is VERY expensive.

    OTOH, many larger cities often have at least one metal supplier. When I wanted to build a λ/2 20m vertical, I found 6061 tube in long lengths just a few miles away. They even have Saturday hours. When I've needed other metal that I couldn't will-call, I've had local suppliers drop it from their local delivery truck.

    I use Online Metals..... they tend to have the best prices of the vendors I've dealt with.

    There are many online metal sellers. In addition to the ones listed above, I've bookmarked:
    http://www.discountsteel.com/
    http://www.metalshorts.com/
    http://www.metalsupermarkets.com/
    http://www.speedymetals.com/

    However, for a VERY good selection, I often just buy from McMaster-Carr (http://www.mcmaster.com/) 'cuz they have a lot of other stuff too. :)
