    Ello mate, just wanting some advice of tube braiding. I see you fitted yours under your compression fittings, but I was thinking of heat shrinking it at the ends and for this to go under the compression fittings. Would that work?

    pete - Putting the heatshrink under the compression fittings would certainly be an easier fit rather than having to cram the braiding in. You'll need some large size heatshrink if your heading for 1/2" tubing tho. Be sure you don't trap the heatshrink in too tightly when doing up the fittings tho as you might rotate it on the tubing and cause your braiding to twist.

    cheaps - cheers mate :) sorry you missed it but glad you saw the end result

    Yes, that's what I was thinking. What braid did you use?

    pete - it was some of the braid from mnpctech. The largest size I had happened to be 1/2".

    PAL - cheers, I would tweak the design a little for the waterfall if I was to make it again. As it is I think I'd rather keep it as unique for now. I do have other plans up my sleeve tho :)

    cheers Ron :)
