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
