I am looking to get a 1 off piece made from stainless steel tube, not sure of the grade but needs to be suitable for carrying clean water at 60C (140F) at 3 bar maximum. Tube is 3/8" OD by 0.020 wall thickness (9.52mm OD x 0.71 wall thickness), piece is a U shape about 2" across by 20" long with the ends bent at 90 degrees to the main part and flares to attach hosepipes to. I was quoted 500 UK pounds ($900 US) for a one-off today! If anyone can fabricate this for me or point me to someone who can, I would be grateful. I am located in the UK, Hertfordshire to be precise. Thanks, Martin.
