Well at my hardware store, I only found a 1/2 OD copper pipe witch will be my pressure room. I got a Canadian Tire near my house witch sells some cars features. Maybe I will find a break line of the good caliber.

Candaian tire should have it or should be able to get it. Also check your phone book, NAPA, Bumper to bumper, etc. should all have brake lines.

There are several sizes and lengths. If you can't find them, just ask at the parts counter. Take your ammo with you to get the right size.

sthorne : Canadian Tire handles auto parts....brake lines are auto parts.

Brake line is fairly soft and easy to bend I think you'd be better off with brass tubing or something with thicker side walls...
