I don't know where to put this -- WTB? Anyway, I need to have a stainless steel pipe or rod manufactured to serve as a shower curtain holder upper for my bathtub. I have found some on Trade Me and Aliexpress that would probably be okay, but I would rather have something made to order and I would rather give the job to someone here if anyone knows how and wants to do it.


The budget is modest, around $120, which is what they would cost elsewhere. Fabrication is simple, just a curved tube less than three metres in length bent into a smoothly rounded U shape with wall mounts at the ends. The idea is that the U can be bolted to a waterproofed wood paneled wall to support a shower curtain in the bathtub. It needs to be sturdy, like a hand rail as it cannot be braced or supported other than by the wall mounts. It also has to be strong enough not to bend if someone does grab it for support.


If anyone is interested, let me know and we can discuss it further. There is no deadline.

Really - what is the point of this? I just find it irritating in a thread like this - which appears to be a genuine query on a straightforward matter.

PeterReader is a (lame) bot that has programmed responses for certain keywords. Personally I'd put those resources to fixing site search but hey, not my site. :)

I'd be interested to know what the key words were that triggered the silly PeterReader response. The OP was pretty straightforward.

I'm in Hastings. There are some small shops here that might be able to do what I want, but I thought I would try Geekzone first.

I would consider aluminium also as it's a lot lighter. wet shower curtain/potential for it to be pulled etc, those two wall fixings are going to have to be real strong

I think you would need to brace the curved end to the roof to achieve what you want and to be honest its going to then cost a lot more than $120
