  1. I have been doing some googlehopping to try and find something I need .. its here Pipe As it says in the advert Made of flexible,
    "formable corrugated stainless steel, this product can flex and bend to make just about any shape, and will hold its shape once bent without leaking. It's easy to cut to length with a variety of tools including hacksaws, reciprocating saws, and cutoff wheels".

    I want something like this about 3/4 to an inch bore to use for dust extraction I'm buggered if I can find a UK supplier or if there's another alternative that's used for something else ? Anyone any alternatives I only really need about a foot of it . I did try and make an extractor hood but I don't have the skills ( it fell to bits) so I'm just going to run the flexi pipe down to near the bit and suck up the dust like that. I have used compressor pipe and it worked ok but I cant get the angle i want under the spindle so the vacuum is not as affective. Can anyone help plz ?

  5. It would actually be cheaper to buy a flexible lamp for 9.99 and strip of the gooseneck pipe !

  6. The flow resistance for such a small diameter pipe will be high, so even though it is quite short you may have problems depending on what kind of swarf you are aiming to extract.

  8. go to your gas meter cupboard look at the pipe on the inlet of the meter that is connected to the regulator this is around 3/4 is stainless and is flexible if this is suitable and long enough for you i can get you one minus the regulator and all u would need to pay is whatever it costs to post

  9. Hi have you thought of using flexible exhaust pipe just looked on the tinternet and found a company Spare Parts for Honda Belle Stihl Husqvarna | Chainsaw Spares | L&S Engineers selling 1.25 " dont know if its ss thou

  10. Flexible exhaust pipe won't hold it's shape.

    For cheap and easy, some 1" hose taped to a bit (or a couple bits) bent metal wire/bar.
