I love that spring idea. I could use that in my setup. I will keep my eyes open for something like that. I will let you know if I find anything.

You said you needed 5-6 feet, so why not pick up some flex conduit.

3/4” inch 25 feet for $10.77


25 feet of 1/2” is also available for $9.47.

You might find it cheaper to locate an electrical contractor with some in stock.

Maybe I will just have to plumb something up!
The pieces themselves are not tubing, they are tightly coiled springs used to prevent kinks while hand bending tubing such as brake and fuel line. I was going to suggest these as well.

yeah, i know what they are for, but my point was, do many people bend 3/4" tubing, that is the size that I would need.

I am thinking the conduit idea would be perfect, I have some actually in my basement, it probably is 3/4" too.

Thanks everyone, helpful and resourceful as usual.
