i need something like a 40" hula hoop

I need something thats like looks like a hulahoop with around a 40" Diameter as an enclosure for some scientific equipment. Im thinking about just going out and buying a hulahoop but that probably wouldn't be a good idea. I need something industrial grade and non magnetic? Do they make anything like this that i can purchase off the shelf?

Go to any metal fab shop (hot rods, choppers) and have them roll you a hoop from your material of choice and weld the ends together.

I could roll form 48" hoop for you for cheap. The shipping from MN might be a killer. As 325max said any fab shop could do this easily. Also chain link fence contractors often have the equipment to roll form.

I have a ton of this stuff on my farm. Go down to Home Depot and get some 1/2 inch piping. Might be able to buy by the foot. Probably $5 or something.
