    Thanks guys for the suggestions :) Wify I don't think that stuff holds its shape ? Like I said Ill go to B&Q and use the flexi lamp tube, if its thick enough or maybe atempt wrapping some wire round a tube as suggested.

    Does it have to be stainless steel, how about a bit of copper pipe 22 or 28mm with soldered bends or bent with a spring or pipe bender ? You can then use plastic clips to hold it in place.

    Cheers,

    erm yes it does, i'm a gas meter fitter and use them daily and have loads of it, it's really stiff. if you wanted i could send you one minus the regulator it wouldnt be too much trouble

    You could try some Kopex flexible conduit. This wont hold its shape on its own but covering it in some heat shrink when its shaped should stiffen it up quite a bit.

    What I would like to do is adjust it on the fly .. that's why I like the idea of the goose-neck stuff, so I can manipulate it to get the maximum draw.
