I can't find much in the way of well made PVC fleshing beams for sale on the net. Could any of you please direct me to a good place to buy? I sure appreciate your time, Joel

Hoosier trapping supply carries them.
They're made by Coon Creek Outdoors (Stu)

Last I looked they were sold out but I would call up Hoosier trapping supplies and ask when they'll get more.
They are top quality beams

Yep, scrap pipe is usually free from contractors. Spouse made 2 from scrap pieces of pipe.

Thanks for the ideas guys... I might just make my own. The bad thing is the 240 mile round trip to get PVC large enough to make a beam. No plumbers left is country either, as they have to travel the same distance to this area for a plumbing job. If I can't order most things here, I usually can't have it. I will still take recommendations on a good place to by a beam, just in case.

Just a few ideas for you:
Not sure if you have any local municipalitys
I got a scrap piece of 12" PVC from the guys at the town highway Dept.
If there is a town anywhere that has a water or sewer Dept I guarantee they'll have a scrap piece of large PVC

That's a good idea Turtledale... I believe the two small incorporated towns within a 60 mile radius of me, still has cast iron sewer systems. There is plans to start replacing that however. I will do some asking around however and see what I can come up with.

[update] I can get 10" and 12" PVC pipe "special ordered" to Menards 120 miles away from me in Williston, ND. A 20' stick of 10" is only $494.99, a 20' stick of 12" is only $649.00, and a 20' stick of 16" is only $1,037.99... In other words, I might just make some beams out of solid ivory with gold inlays! I have searched the net all I care to for a PVC beam for sale and can't even find a used one. Unless someone has any leads on where a fellow can find one for sale, I will be closing my search. Hardwood beams have worked for me just fine over the years, and they will have to work for me in the years ahead it seems. Thanks for all the advice, but still, keep us folks who may be looking for one know if something comes up. Joel

Sent you a pm but your results are pretty much the same as I've had. Ive been looking for a while also I called Hoosier they said it was a special and they sold out and are not sure if or when they will have more but it for sure will not be this season if they do another run.

You might try doing a search on Craigslist. I've found everything from traps to tractor parts on there.

Holy cow at those prices. I got the spouse's scraps for free and we got another piece about 6 ft long for a culvert for free from a local plumbing company that does commercial work.
Water pipe is what he got, the blue stuff. They had a big pile behind their shop, just asked and we got it for free.

Do you have any well drillers in the area? They use it for well casing. We have drillers in about every other town around here. The casing is heavier wall also. I bought a 10ft piece of 14 in that is a quarter inch thick for $45.

I bought a chunk of the green storm sewer PVC from Home Depot and cut in in half to make a beaver pattern. You can shape it and flatten it out by submerging it in boiling water. I put a few pots full of boiling water into a heavy plastic tote and submerged the piece for a minute, then took it out and flattened it out. Seems to work out great and it's a lot cheaper than sourcing a large diameter PVC pipe.
