He seemed like he was making a big deal out of something easy. just get it from the steel yard right?
Pipe, what I used isn't as strong as tube(DOM) so some benders have a hard time bending tube. There is nothing wrong with using pipe though as long as the wall is thick enough. My tube fenders, made from pipe, have proved there self time and again. My uncle uses pipe, thick wall, in his race car roll cage and it takes a beating. He's rolled it, smashed it, never has the pipe failed or bent.
