Hi Damien,

Do you mean the  'Blowing tube'  ??  The bit that supplies the air to the gun.

I would have thought it was plastic tube as the pressures are hardly going to be large.

Hope this helps

Hi Ken no the tube for paint pick up in the jar mine has gone missing I've tried silicon and styrene and thinners affects both.
I made one years ago for using a slightly larger bottle from the inner insulator of antenna cable but can't remember which cable.

Agh !!!  sorry, I forgot about the jar system.

It looks like you need an acid resistant type of tube.  All I can suggest is a standard rigid plastic tube which might last long enough to spray with.

Cheers
