Plastic vacum lines

Does anybody have an idea where I can pick up a few
feet, I want to replace some of them. Fastline doesn't
seem to have them.

Thanx,

Sometime a hardware store has exactly what you are looking for. Often in the area where rope etc is sold in bulk. Also the area where kits are sold for regrigerators.

The only drawback is whether the tubing is heat resistant enough.

Dealer has tons of the stuff in rolls. You buy it by the feet, real cheap. Take a sample with you so you get the right kind.

pricy dealer

I bought some from the dealer, it wasn't that cheap.
I was also thinking a hardware store, but no luck yet,
Home Depot doesn't have them this small either.
Maybe the dealer is the way to go since they need to
be heat resistant.

Thanx,

Try Auto Zone or Advance Auto . They both sell it in 1 meter packages. About $ 5.99 each
