aero tube holders
Hello, I bought some oval and pear shaped tubing, but oops didn't realize I would need special tube holders
Anybody know of a source?
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

Learn to hand miter and use wood vee blocks to hold the tubes in your vice. Andy.
