Look for a steel fabrication shop.

We could do it where I work, but I think you'll do better locally.

What material, what diameter is the tubing and what is the radius of the small ring at the bottom?

Any stainless steel tubing would be ok... 1Ē, 7/8Ē...

The OD of the tank I have now, or any normal rental tank is 12Ē, so one ring with the ID that size and another smaller at the bottom to keep it out of the water would work.

How about stainless round stock instead of tubing?
