Can anyone help me source some 1/8" sq carbon fibre tube.

I think I can get some 4mm sq tube but would rather get the correct size, if possible.

Thanks Denis.

I'd checked Ebay but it was only giving me sizes of 10mm plus.

After your comment I went back and realised the the search function on my Ebay app was changing 1/8" to 18 and I didn't notice ! I stuck "3mm" in and hey presto !!

1/8" = 3.175mm not going to notice that difference with my building ability.

Cheers !

You now discovered it yourself Andy, to try imperial searches in metric units

Most modern materials are offered in metric sizes, but paper plans are more likely imperial notation
