Quote:Oh, it's hollow, but the tube wall thickness is around 1/8". I weighed it, so the 12-13lb is not just a guess. You'll be impressed when you pick the shipping box up.Recently in another topic here was shown a picture where someone had a friend work up a nice aluminum tube as a replacement. Looked really good. The diameter required is around 4".Mike
