I'm very fortunate to have e-plastics.com 10 minutes from my home and the 6' piece of 3/8 or 1/2 od tube $2-3 each (wheee.gif). Might go w/ the Phobya push in fittings if they will fit w/ 3/8" od acrylic tube.

No I don't believe the Phobya will work as they are only for metric sized tubing. For the 3/8" you can get the Mettleair push fits off Ebay pretty cheap. I use a few in my build.

There's a member selling a few pneumatic 1/2" push fittings and I sent him a pm. Might go with 1/2 od acrylic tube. I'll pick up an e22 silicone tube from ppcs.com since I'll be ordering a few more things from them too. Excited as I may take the plunge biggrin.gif. E-plastics.com has the six foot tube of 3/8x1/2 acrylic tube for $3. A couple of pieces should be enough and its only a 10 minute drive from my home biggrin.gif.

Very smart the jig. Where can I find the fuel line?
post #286 of 4306
Went to eplastics.com and got some numbers with my trusty caliper:


3/8" od tube ~9.8mm
1/2" od ~12.8mm
5/8" od ~15.99-16.00mm
3/4" od ~19.2mm


I'm thinking the 3/8 is probably too small to use with the 10mm fittings and I've yet to find a bspp 1/4 fitting with 16mm od.


Hmmm, gonna have to rethink this as its gonna get expensive with tube and fittings.
