My question is whether you had to drill the hole in the section of cooper tubing, or if they sell sections of tubing with holes along the length of the tubing. Sorry if the wording of my question is confusing
The middle section is just a ˝” copper tube with a hole drilled in it. The rotating “T” section around it is a standard ˝” “T” that has been shortened slightly on both ends as well as hollowed out a little with a dremel tool to allow the middle section to fit through it freely.
I cut the slots in the four main sections with a jigsaw and also made a small guide to help keep the slots uniform.
