Well, I've had enough requests for the name/phone of the distributor I
bought the mast from that I guess I should post it. Please be advised that
I'm posting the info without his knowledge, and I have no idea if he's
interested in or even capable of shipping tubing all over the U.S. Do not
ask for galvanizing, it's not available in the OKC area. Tulsa has the
nearest large-tank hot galvanizing facility. I suspect I got my good deal
mainly because he had a big flatbed load of tubing of other kinds coming
from his source mill in Chicago anyway, and they were willing to throw my
mast in with it. Otherwise, the shipping costs would probably have been
prohibitive. As an example, another distributor here offered to get me a
20-footer from his mill in California for $567 delivered here. I passed on
that one. Clearly, the truck freight charge is the hangup, so most people
would probably be better off trying to work the same deal I did here, but
with a distributor in their own locality. Shipping one piece gets reasonable
only if it can be added to a truckload order of other steel that's coming
anyway. So if you are willing to wait for your item to be included as part
of a larger shipment, then maybe it gets doable. Here goes:

Special Metals, Inc.
6406 South Eastern
Oklahoma City, OK 73149
Sales: Joe Varva

I hope Joe doesn't take out a contract on me for doing this... I just about
gave him hives before he finally located and obtained this mast for me.  :-)
