Some of my air brush bottles are getting on a bit in years and the syphon tubing is deteriorating, does anyone know what sort of tubing will stand up to Acrylic Thinners and where to get some? I have tried some fuel tubing (Yellow coloured) and it just swells up, expands and falls off after short time in the paint.
Thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Hi Gavin, I`ve had similar problems over the years. Settled on black plastic (type?) tubing used for irrigation drippers , i.d. is good & stands up to Thinners. Call round, got plenty. Cheers Richard

All sorted thanks to a couple of "Experienced" lure maker friends. Pirtek has high pressure (250psi) Nylon hose in various sizes and cheap, about $1.50 per metre. This may help out others down the track.
