I'd be a little concerned about 1/8" fittings breaking with normal wear and tear (not pneumatic functioning, just getting knocked around).


As long as they're not made of paper I wouldn't be too concerned.

What's wrong with paper? :D

I would have never of thought of this technique pretty good results to and could laminate the end result in epoxy to make it last.
Less weight and a lot less money out of my pocket.
