Default Magnesium tubing

Does anyone know a source for magnesium tubing? I want to make some extra wands (9.5" and 12") for my MA505MkIII tonearm. Thanks in advance,

John

Default an "S" shaped arm?

I guess I answered my own question... Wonder if a straight arm/headshell could be made to allow the interchange. If so, then a high quality aluminum tubed wand can easily be sourced.

check out the usual suspects, McMaster & Carr, and Small Parts Inc.
