    Default Hardline Source?

    lookin to go with hardline for my water lines, but I can only find it at summit/jegs so far. The only line that comes in the sizes (5/8, 1/2) I need is allum. Also the only "terminations" I can find are female AN tube nuts and sleeves.

    So, who is your hardline source?

    Is there such a doohickey to go from hardline to NPT female, or do I have to go with a male AN to male NPT adapter and AN tube nut?
    Boating is nothing like cocaine, boating is much more addictive and results in bigger parties!

    Default aircraft spruce

    aircraft spruce used to have good prices on ss hardline. remember, the thick stuff is harder to bend, and the seamed line might split when you flare it. worst thing i ever did was use a thick 1/2 line, hard to flare too.

    I have a grip of this stuff in my garage I took out of a boat. Most of it is straight with a few slight bends and it has all the collars and fittings. I would be willing to let it go for dirt cheap.

    do it in stainless. the alum typ. comes in rolls and looks like poop in boats. Stainless comes in straight sticks. Any place that sells industrial pipe should have it. Ask for seamless, bright, annealed 304 s.s. tube.

    As far as those fittings, Parker and or Swagelok should have them. They will be spendy in stainless though.

    If you can't find the stuff local McMaster Carr will have it all. (but can only ship 6' lengths or so)

    swagelok, ham-lok, etc require no flaring. get the fittings on ebay. i found the tube locally. if you have a parker hannifan store near you they will have it. 1/2" will be right around 5$/ft. i found a cheaper supplier locally and got it for 3.50 ish/ft. use a good industrial hand bender. these guys are who my local supply was. i know it doesnt help you but it might help others.
