    Does anyone know of a wholesale company that will sell welded hyd. fittings for steel or aluminum tubing?

    thanks

    I was hoping to have pre made fittings that were welded. Again does anyone know where I might get welded fittings?

    thanks

    Fittings connect things. Welded ones are already welded to something. Maybe you want weldable fittings? What kind, what size, how much pressure?

    I'd use schedule 40 or 80 threaded pipe and fittings

    or stainless high pressure tubing flared

    3000 pounds is nothing to play with, a pin hole leak will slice and dice you
