I know this thread is a little out-dated but i've got a question for the OP... What size tubing did you use for the step? What was the overall diameter and how thick are the walls of the tube? 3/8", 5/16", 1/4"? Any of those? I'm trying to build myself a set of sliders right now.

The local metal supply here in Orlando has 10' of 5"x5" angle iron that is 3/8" thick for $150.00 after tax... Would you all consider this a reasonable price? I havn't priced out the tubing yet because I don't know what wall thickness is recomended.

IMO, 3/8" is overkill. 3/16" or 1/4" would work great.

Yeah 3/8 is too thick for the slider. I have homemade 1/4 ones and those are as thick as I would go. If they had 3/16 I would have gone that way. I think I paid 80.00 for 10'

For the steps, since they weren't going to be load bearing, I just went down and picked up some 1 1/4 piping (or 1" can't remember) for the depot or lowes Cleaned it up, and welded it up to the sliders.
