No pipe clamps or threaded steel pipe in the UK?

Postby Jghost » Sun Jan 09, 2011 7:48 pm

Doing a bicycle repair stand project. So far I haven't been able to find the essentials. 1/2 inch or 3/4 galvanised steel pipe (threaded). In various sizes. And a pony clamp or pipe clamp like this (1/2 or 3/4) -

Google ""

What's going on? Seems to be common place in USA. Rutlands in the only uk supplier found but would prefer to buy in real life. Anyone know where I could go for such things? They seem pretty ordinary to me so very disappointed I can't find them.

Cheers folks.

Try BES Gas and Plumbing Supplies -
I used to buy my steel pipes and fittings from them.
Most people have changed to copper or plastic.
