    A question for the Fridgies

    Part of my income is derived by art work. I've been playing around making flowers and these look like they are going to be a successful venture. Having had orders placed already and I only started making a couple on Wednesday. Any way question???? where do I source 1/4 or 3/8 copper tube from. I was given some from a refrigeration company in town , but I don't want to be seen bludger. Mind you I did take them in a boned out smoked trout as a Koha the next day. Keen to stand on my own 2 feet so any info would be great. My local plumbers merchant doesn't stock it.

    How much do you need? Both 3/8" and 1/4" come in 20m softdrawn rolls off he shelf. Fridge tube and plumbers tube are very different. Fridge is much heavier and measured OD. PM me what you need and I can get it to you at my cost.

    I doubt that. They may carry pair coil for AC installs but not soft drawn copper.

    Most brakelines were run in bundy tube which is a copper coated steel and IIRC the common size is 3/16". Been a while since I looked though so may have changed.
