Useful Link w/weights of steel tube


I have no association with 'West Coast Steel', they just have a helpful chart.

Try to get your hands on a Ryerson or Alro stock list. They list the weight per foot or per square inch of dang near any material shape you can think of in aluminum, stainless, or regular steel. That's what I use for tubes, angles, and channels. For flats / plate I just figure the volume and multiply steel by 0.284 lb/in^2 or aluminum by 0.100 lb/in^2. Or just model it and let the program tell me what it weighs...

Another good one is the 'Central Steel and Wire' book. Has just about everything you every wanted to know about lots of different steel products ( weights/specs/strengths for tubes/wires/flat stock )

I think if you call their office they'll send you their book...

yeah, at work I have Ryerson, Alro, O'neal, Central, and EMJ. Ryerson is by far the most extensive and has the best material property and tolerancing info. Snagging any of the first 4 would prove useful for casual fabricators. EMJ is a little all over the place.
