I need about 20 pieces 50mm long of 14mm OD tube with a minimum bore of 12mm. I have not found any UK suppliers with 1mm wall but there are some that list 1.5mm wall but none seem to have stock.

In my searching I discovered that SS 14x1mm was quite common until recently as it was used by gamers for the water piping in PC cooling systems, nowadays though its been replaced by rigid plastic tube (its cheaper? but its best feature is the colour choice!

I could make the parts I need on the lathe but chopping tube (using a plumbers pipe cutter) will give me nice radiused ends.

Has anyone got any surplus PC tubing I could buy?

That would be perfect if it was in stock. I've trawled all the PC cooling fraternity and a few list that same tube, but none have any stock.

1mm in pgk2's link will be suitable so thanks.
