Default stainless or aluminum steam pipe

I have been looking everywhere for some 6" stainless, or aluminun pipe for my steamhood. I purchased a preheater, and it had 14' of stainless pipe, but I have to extend anothe 4'. Called at least 6 different places with no luck. Oh except 1 , and they would have to bring it in from San Francisco for a crazy cost. Any sugestions??

Viking, try I bought 8" stainless from them last fall and it was under $10/ft with free shipping. Check online for a coupon code as well, you never know? When I bought my hood I was quoted $25/ft , I figured I could do better!
