Good question....I honestly don't know... Brake line certainly would hold up...

I'm sure others have used the stuff in the mini spud guns so I imagine it would...

Better ask or look around...

Power brake system pressure is in the order of 1000 - 3000 psi.

It will hold 140psi.

Tell the clerk that you want the brake line for a non-automotive application (science project?), and ask to see what they have in stock.

The brake lines are usually all hanging on a rack in one location, so this should not present much of a problem.

ifr you search for "brass tubing" at mcmaster.com it will bring up a very descriptive page of all the dimensions they carry. the only problem is that they only sell packs of 5 tubes... I have seen brass tubes at hobby stores as well though...

I like to play blackjack. I'm not addicted to gambling, I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle.

Well I'll go to another shop, because they asked me the serial number and some other stuff but not the size...
