Hello all
The Ryerson Tull steel stock list gives 2" od.x 1/4" wall tube
a weight per foot of 4.673.  At 20' long, that is 93.46 pounds.
Some alloys do vary and I don't have the chromolly listing but
nickel and chrome alloys typically weigh more than carbon steel.

OOPS--I made a multiplication mistake and forgot to carry a
one--so my post of 83.2 should have been 93.2.   OOPS
Must have been breathing too much aluminum and the Alzheimers
has sat in.

(Apologies to you, George, and Mark!)
