Finding 1 ľ inch pipe in the UK?

Iím looking for somewhere to buy Speedrail, 1 ľ inch scheduled 40 aluminium pipe here in the UK or if not the EU. Itís been a struggle and as of yet Iíve had no success, itís not something that the usual metal suppliers have in stock and I donít know what the cost of ordering from the US will be but I doubt itís pretty.

Has anyone sourced any of this pipe here in the UK or know of somewhere they think I could try?

Imperial sized pipe was phased out here years ago. Can you not use the nearest metric equivalent?

Hi, the nearest equivalent thatís commonly available here is 1 and 5/8 inch 10 gauge tube but it creates problems for me as Iím building clamps and fittings around it and they will then be bound to those dimensions, the tolerance are also terrible on the tube for some reason with the ID being up +/_ 3.5mm.

If I really cant find it anywhere Iíll see if I can find something in the right ballpark with better tolerances but itíll be a compromise no matter what.
