I'm looking for a 2" length of 2.5" OD aluminum pipe that is at least 1/8" thick. Does anyone know where I can buy this for cheap, or better yet, have a off-cut piece for free? I am using it to join two silicone hoses and tapping it for a methanol injection nozzle.

Similar to this joiner pipe but the ends don't have to be beaded

Metal Mart or Metal Supermarket.

I don't think there is a Metal Mart this side of the Port Mann, but there is a Metal Supermarket on Still Creek, by Lordco warehouse in Burnaby. Really nice guys.

I don't know about emu oil, but I know Relaxus has jojoba oil, and they used to have lots of sizes for it.

They are on 101 W. 5th Ave in Vancouver.

Thanks! I emailed headphoen bar but too bad they don't carry AT products. It's a great store, been there before, very friendly owner.

I ended up going to Tom Lee to place a special order for the pads, waiting time 2~6weeks

Canadian tire on heather/marine drive definitely has it, picked some up a few weeks ago. IIRC $4/pack of 4 (4 pieces ~ size of a average sheet of paper).
