    Posted: 30 Jan 2018 at 5:49pm
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.
Cheers,

Gavin

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.
Cheers,

Gavin
