Do Bunnings Cut Solid Metal Tubes?

This is the metal tube I am talking about. https://www.bunnings.com.au/metal-mate-6-3mm-x-3m-galvanised...

Need something about 2m, but they come in 3m, longer than I need and definitely cant be transported in my SUV.

Saw another post about cutting timber. So wonder if they will cut the metal tubes?

    Solid Metal Tubes

    oxymoron right there.

    • I think OP means a solid metal rod

    • More like Solid Metal Tie Wire

  • 6.3 mm you'd be able to roll it to a U shape or round 1.3m wide and stick it in the back.

    What did they say when you asked them?

      We can cut the sausages with the the tongs but they doubt it will cut through steel rod and if i wanted an extra sausage with that would cost me extra $2.50

    Duct tape to the body of the car and make out it's the antenna if cops pull you over

  • In my experience they do not

    It's 6.3mm, you could cut it with scissors from the $2 shop.

    Seriously though, as above, just bend it with your hands, or get a small child to do it for you.

      LOL at the last part.

    I don't believe they will. But just walk to the electrical section and use the wire cutters to chop it, if you want a clean cut. Or as others have said, just bend it.

    Go to the tool section, grab bolt cutters (https://www.bunnings.com.au/craftright-450mm-bolt-cutter_p60...)
    Buy for $15 or put them back!

    • They have a tool library..?
      Nice..

    • That one can only cut 6mm

    Go to a metal shop they should be cheaper and will cut it for you.

      This. As aussieprepper has suggested search for a metal supplier that will be likely much cheaper than Bunnings, and also will cut to length with most likely a powered hacksaw in only a few moments.

    Walk there and pole vault home.

  • Must be a tiny suv if u cant put a 3mr rod in it? From hatch to dash should go. Put something over the ends so it does not mark anything.

      If it doesn’t, just place it in diagonally and stick it out the front window a bit. Maybe not legal, but unlikely to cause any issues if it isn’t hanging out too much.

    • Agree.
      I regularly fit 3.2m x 185mm x 25mm FJ pine in mine.
      (It's for ongoing weatherboard repairs to a 110 YO Federation house.)
      If you want to cut it, go buy an Ozito 18V cordless angle grinder and DIY in the carpark.

      • Let’s see, cordless grinder plus battery for around $100 or the cheapest hacksaw they have for $5. Difficult decision ;)

  • +1

    Battery angle grinder with thin metal abrasive cutting disc circa 2/3mm or indeed the hacksaw!!.

    You can ring Bunnings, have you ever thought of that

  • we had them cut a tube for a curtain that rod. Think it was metal but not sure. It could depend on the person working the saws too
