    I am looking for some of the aluminum rod holders so I can weld up a rod holder rack for my boat. I have seem some home made racks that just use straight aluminum tube but I would love to find some of the ones that have a flared end like you see on most welded boats from the factory.

    Dont know where you can purchase flared holders locally, but a muffler shop might be able to flare the ends for you. They can flare the ends of exhaust pipes where they bolt to the exhaust manifold

    Not sure how it would work on aluminum but a cheap princess auto hydraulic press with a 2 5/16” tow ball attached puts a nice flare in 2” stainless holders.
