Stainless Steel Tubing.  We got in 6,000' of 3/16" stainless tubing.  This is unused, surplus inventory.  L: Denver  Click Here for Pricing>>

BEFORE:  This tubing came from a laparoscopic surgery instrument manufacturer.  They changed the specs on their tubing, so this inventory became obsolete.  As you can imagine, this tubing is super high quality!

AFTER:  "I'm thinking of 'repurposing' your stainless tubing to replicate the garden feature in the attached picture." - Linda in Michigan

repurposedPIONEER:  Problem: Paul, an environmental engineer at a large warehouse facility, is resourceful and a "repurposer".  His forklift operators kept running into the exterior walls of their very large warehouse building.  He had tried multiple solutions.  Solution: Paint railroad rail yellow and bolt it 18" out from the wall.  (see pictures below.)  "This worked like a charm.  I was continuing to have to repair the wall and replace concrete or rubber bumpers and came up with this idea to use railroad rail." - Paul  

Our Customers.  We often get asked, "Who are your customers?"  Well, in the last couple of weeks we had two state wildlife agencies...the Oregon Dept of Wildlife , and the North Carolina Dept of Resources and Fisheries purchase from us.
