Having trouble finding anywhere that stocks 1/4" or 6mm PTFE tubing - suitable for Hot-end liner.
Dotmar on the suppliers list don't...

Try SMC or one othe the other pneumatic suppliers, I just checked PTFE tube is on the SMC USA website, so a reasonable chance one of the pneumatic suppliers will have it or be able to get it in. [www.smcusa.com] probably will nopt be particularly cheap though knowing NZ suppliers. You could try ebay and look for a supplier offering free international shipping I have gotten quite a few bits and pieces at reasonable prices that way.

I had to buy ptfe tubing by 10 meters for my bowden, I can sell you a piece at cost price if it suits you.

Dimensions : 6mm external diameter, 4mm internal.
Cost would be 5 euros by meter + shipping from France (depends on the length, to give you an idea : under 100g 2,35 € / under 250g 5,60 € / under 500g 7,35 € - regular letter pricing, no tracking).

Send me a PM if interested.

Thanks - I'll check the local pneumatologists..

Interestingly - there seem to be very few references on the main reprap pages -
Mcmasters, but they are about double the price of the one ebay hit for 1/4", Yorkshire Pneumatic (ha!) services, at 7 gbp per metre. (plus 8 more post).
So at worst that's probably a go... (looking at trying a North90 stainless steel tube hot-end)

If anyone else needs some, I listed it on emakershop (easier for me to keep track etc).

See [www.emakershop.com]

I will have 2/4mm and 3/5mm ID/OD PFA tubing here in the next day or 2.

PFA is very similar to PTFE and in my opinion slightly better for this application.

Send me a PM for pricing details.
or search for makershop on Trademe
I'm in Auckland.
