    Hi Members,
    I am in the process of completing my Howell V 4 and would like to add the plastic tubing for the water circulation in black tubing. Does anyone know of a source for this product?. Sizes are to suit 1/4" and 9/32" connections.
    Many thanks in anticipation.

    I believe automotive vacuum tubing may be available in the approximate sizes you need. Try an auto parts store for it.

    I would use Santoprene thermoplastic tubing. It is black and can be heat formed into tight radius bends just like automotive hoses. You can get it from MSC or McMaster Carr. 1/4" ID is available.
