Acrylic pipebending 101 - Page 9

post #81 of 4306
Hey guys so I have finally decided on using acrylic for my build. I already have 3/8 ID 5/8 OD monsoon fittings so I would like to use the 3/8 x 5/8 acrylic tubing. I'm wondering where you guys buy this tubing. Also, can I get acrylic tubing in a red color? I found some red acrylic tubing online, but it is 1/2 OD. Can't find anything smaller. Would I be able to buy tubing at a local hardware store like Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, etc?

You cant use those fittings with acrylic,you need to use push fit or Bitspower c47 fittings.

Yeah, was trying that last night, it was in tight! Could be I need to sand them down more than I thought. Looked amazing so will be worth it.

Just room temp water is fine, best to use to distilled so it doesn't leave any marks. The point of the water is to lubricate the rubber sealing rings like using butter to get a ring off your finger.

So this is 3/8 ID and 1/2 OD. My fittings are for 3/8 ID 5/8 OD. Is that how acrylic tubing works? Would I be able to wrestle that onto my fitting since it is only 1/8" smaller. How does that work?

Thanks & REP for you

Nevermind, I misread that you wanted 1/2 inch. They're really, really hard to find for acrylic. I searched a long time and have given up on it.
