Ed. note: Sorry, this RFQ is outdated so private contact is no longer available, but public technical replies are still welcome! No public brand/source suggestions please ( huh? why?)

Ed. note: We've published your RFQ, Don, but I seriously doubt that you will find chrome plated tubing of this size "on the shelf" anywhere. The steel tubing should be on the shelf at a steel warehouse, but you would need to get a chrome plating shop to plate it for you. You're probably looking for nickel-chrome plating. Our FAQ, "Introduction to Chrome Plating" may help. Good luck.
