Try Steve G0UIH http://www.vortexantennas.co.uk/

I've known him for over 30 years so would have no issues in trading with his company if he can supply what you are looking for.

I used to get all my awg sized tubing from Antenna Engineering near Melton Mowbray, but all my attempts to find them on the net have failed.
Other than the Ebay source you've already tried they were the only ones I'd successfully used in the last five or so years.

I'm considering buying a load of aluminium but they need to be in lengths telescopic from 1 1/2" (38mm) down, has anyone dealt with a company dealing in such as most of the major players don't accommodate sections telescoping snugly inside each other.

Aluminium Warehouse.

I've bought quite a bit from them, and found them to be excellent.
Their website says they have good stock level, but it's worth giving them a call just to check first.

I would rather use the correct tube if possible ,this tubing as been pointed out https://www.metals4u.co.uk/aluminium/telescopic-tube/15.9mm-(-58-)-od/p3052 which might do the job.
