Plumbing help

Hey hey,

Does anyone have suggestions on how I can run a line between these two? I like the way it's set up but I don't know if I can get a bend like that with macro line any help would be great!





Thanks
Mike

if you have another straight macro fitting you should be good to go?

That's a pretty tight bend - they tend to leak if they enter the fitting at too much of an angle.

You could do hard line. It'll take some learnin' - but it's such a little piece you will have a bunch of attempts even if you only buy a little piece of tubing.



Makes the gun harder to break down - but the look is really clean.

Would adding two 45 degree angles make it a straight shot?

it would but the problem is the fittings will be on top of each other hardine is the best choice. my suggestion to find hardine is a pnuematics shop if you have one.

true about it being a tight bend but it can be done...it can e done with a SS line as well? but hard line would be your best bet and it will look very nice!!!

I got the suggestion to lightly heat some macro to create a bend. Did it and it seems stable but I have yet to run air through it. Hear it is and hopefully I can get some air through it tonight. Tad bit worried about the integrity but it seems stiff and hopefully will be good. I think I will go with hard line in the future but this will work for now unless I blow up lol. Thank you everyone for your suggestions. Ill let you all know if I explode later this evening

It's not that you're going to blow up - but those fittings are going to leak at some point.

I think the stuff on my gun is from McMaster-Carr

I blew a macroline on a Viking about a year back. Scared the hell out of everyone but doesn't do anything really. Just lose your air is all
