High temp hose

You should be check out the yellow pages for your area and find a suppler for industrial hoses, etc. Most will carry reinforced high temp silicone tubing. A lot of places won't deal with the consumer but if they have what you want then you could go through your local auto parts store and even offer to go pick it up yourself. I have done this with several products I've needed that are not readily available at your local hobby or retail store.

I am using high temp teflon, I got my piece from John at triad aviation, it is the same as what KS uses and sells as a coupler for their cans, Some industrial supply stores might have it, none in my area do, it PTFE, Mcmaster-carr in the US sells it at a decent price, but i am not sure if they will ship a short piece, the part no. is 5239k22, they have it listed at
$9.22/ft, US, so if you have someone that would split it with you... and they ship overnight.
There is no such thing as too low

I gave Peter a piece of the industrial high temp silcon reinforced hose to try.
He will probably report on it soon.
