Posted: Thank you all for the tips. i'll go for the 1.6mm seems like it'll be fine. I was looking for some 3mm thick but noone had any it was only 1.6, that just seemed too thin cause the staff i have at the moment is 3mm. These are gonna be for myself, i dont think i would trust myself selling anything thx again!!
Posted: Yep, you can bend duralimin, i'm just having several sets of s shaped six foot staffs bent, it helps if you have access to a tube forming machine bender, what ever you want to call it, find a helpful small engineering firm, I would say watch your radius(s) though, tube and wall thickness will tend to dictate cold form bend radius

Posted: generally my 3ft staff is a 500mm length of 16mm beech (hardwood NOT pine) dowel rod with 100mm shaved (narrowed) on each end to accomodate a 300mm length of 16mm aluminium tubing forced over the shaved ends.
a 6ft staff uses the same principle with approximately double all the lengths, but instead of 16mm dowel and aluminium, i use 19mm.
i pretty much use the same concept for swords as well!
okay to answer the actual question... the aluminium (both 19 and 16 mm) is of a 1.2mm wall!
Works just fine!
I'll try post some pics next week! EDITED_BY: Shu (1114695579)
