onlone source for downsport pipe


where can I buy the downspout gutter pipe on line. I am looking for a few pieces 30'' long.


in the early 2000's I built most of the SPAD to the bone planes, now I am wanting to build a few cheap nitro planes again.

Have you tried Menards or Home Depot type places?

Do you have a Do It Best hardware store near you? They have free ship to store.

Not online, but as of 2010 you could order the 2 3/8 "Canadian" down spout from Home Depot. I did it once back then. You have to go to the store and have them look up Amerimax PVC TO583 at the special orders counter. Minimum order was 6 10' pieces at $42 in 2010. I don't know if they still do it.

Here the info from spadworld.net:
Quote:
Home Depot's SKU number 264-917 orders of 6 sticks(sold in packs 1minimum) of the Amerimax's PVC TO583. It is the 2 and 3/8 square Canadian PVC and weights 2 pounds 10 ounces per 10 foot section. 6 sticks cost me 45 bucks and shipping was free.

glad you found some.

The home depot site is wacky. I could not find a search result for the SKU 264917 or TO583 by using their built in search. But a google search for "Amerimax TO583" returned this link to their site:

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Amerimax-...0583/100002915

It shows as not available at my location or Ohio. I used the "Check Nearby Stores" link for different places. It seems to be available in store in some California locations (I used zip code 90210). Hmmm. I bet they could still order it at any store if you are persistent with the pro desk special orders guy/gal.
