Here is 3" galvanized electrical conduit pipe for $4.13 a foot.

Yes, I did see 3” floor jacks at Lowe’s which might be an option for around $50.  Heaven knows what I’ll cut them with; my mounting location can’t accommodate the full length that they came in.  

If nothing else turns up, perhaps I can find a shorter length which will not require cutting and should be cheaper, too.

Floor jacks used to be about 3 inch too.  Used to keep old wood floors from sagging.
