    Yes, aircraft spruce sells the correct stuff. Canada post likes to bend it though!

    Hi,

    ...."Canada post likes to bend it though!"

    Mine came bent too. but not through Canada. It looked like they made it fit in a tad too short box.

    I have been getting it through Spruce and Univair. Univair usually straps it to a piece of wood and ships in a heavy tube.

    Hi,

    What does the "Univair" Piper channel compare to?

    https://www.univair.com/piper/parts/...piper-channel/

    Steve< I can't find either of those channels at the Univair site, even using those numbers. I always have a hard time finding their things though. The Spruce channel is .020, the chart says that's 25 gauge and seems kind of light to me.

    Just found it at Univair, they call it steel "U" channels. Page #262.

    Maybe they are out of it and removed it from the site, not sure.
