    Default HDPE interest in Charlotte or NC?

    FYI

    "I am planning on ordering HDPE from McMaster-Car. Wondering if anyone in my surrounding area would like to go in and split the shipping cost, or drive to ATL to pick our order up?"

    High-density polyethylene (HDPE) tubes which are used to build arches. I think the ones he's ordering are 2".

    What kind of prices are we looking at as was thinking of adding these 2016 but might try to at least get the material earlier if it's easier now.

    Go to the page I linked in post #8 . Basically it's 120 for 50ft and 235 for 100ft. I may be able to give a small credit if I get a few more orders. Making the order Monday or Tuesday at the latest

    I totally dropped the ball on this and didn't get an order in. Does anyone have any extra they want to sell? Like between 10 and 40 ft? I'd like to do 2 arches at about 9ft each but I'll take whatever I can get.

    Maybe Ron @rfallatt might have some extra ? Send him a message. If he does not reply, let me know and I'll dig up his email and phone number for you.

    Sorry, No extra!
    I have 50ft left paid for and scheduled for pick up. I will post here if the person changes his mind. (Unlikely)
    I would gladly manage another group buy if there was at least 300 feet interest.

    Nice offer Ron. I am curious if there is enough interest. We'll see if any other jump in here. I may want some myself but most likely not until next year. I have not designed my new layout yet. I am not sure if you saw, but I sold my house in Cary and moved out the "sticks" in East Clayton. VERY happy out here .. No traffic. Absolutely none ! I still hope to have a small display this year but not enough to be worth driving all the way out here to see it. All my stuff is still in Cary. My buyers agreed to store it until sometime in November when my new garage is built. The rain wiped them out by almost two weeks but they finally get started next Wednesday ... at least that is what they say ..
    Thanks,
