Has anyone in the UK spotted a source for straight lengths of 10mm semi-hard copper tube? Everything I can find online is annealed coil and I would prefer straight if it was readily available.

OT, I know, but I thought that AMD fixed the frame tearing thing on multi-monitor displays? Was this before the patch was out?

Phew - it took a while but I have found a supplier of 10mm x 0.6mm x 6m semi-hard straight lengths (shipped as 2x3m pieces) at fwb.co.uk. They charge £8.89 ex vat for each 2x3m and shipping is only £4.95 ex vat.

Tube Cutter question... I know there are two types - the cheap cylinder ones that you pop over the tube and rotate and the more expensive and larger ones with a thumb screw that seem to support the tube better and can have their cutter wheels changed.

Given a compact 90deg - short straight - 90deg bend, are you able to use the larger thumb screw cutters in this situation? I am talking about short bends where the tube comes up, bends in a right angle, along and goes back down in the same plane such as between two parallel radiators.

Be aware the hardness value of the tube,I get pipe from fwb all the time.
Also be aware fwb are mailbox spam monkeys.

The smaller autocuts are far and away better than manual cutters,they support the tube better and cut evenly,if you are unused to manual cutters they can 50p the ends (flatspots).

Thanks for the tip on the cutters and tube - I will be getting a good 10mm bender to get nice precise bends. I may also make a temp email address to register with FWB in that case. I don't intend to be a frequent customer.

I figured I would order three or four 6m lengths to give me some practice and training material and then offer the scrap on my local FreeCycle group when I am done practicing. My loop will be straightforward since I have plenty of space to work in the S8 and only a pair of rads to reach.

Out of interest, do you have a preferred method for polishing the tube? I know the old vinegar/baking powder/salt paste will get it clean but will it get it smooth too?

Hi guys needs some help, just want to make sure I am getting the right stuff. Will these fittings work with this pipe? (10 MM OD x 10 METER
