    for what purpose? Do you have an old-school fixture that holds the tubes?

    No to old school fixtures. I have a precision V clamp for round tubes, would like something like the paragon aluminum tubing clamps for non round tube shapes. To hold during milling or drilling.

    I think there are just far too many shapes and sizes to make tubing blocks for all the different variations. For example, these are just Columbus Life megatube cross-sections.



    Probably your best bet is to make the blocks yourself out of hardwood.

    agree with Stan, I wish someone would make blocks for oval fork blades, which is a standard shape
