IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all colors and sizes are stocked - in stock items will ship within 1 week - non-stocked items usually ship within 1-2 weeks for Natural/White* and 3 weeks for color - please call or email if you want to check specific ship times.
*Natural/White tubing ranges in color for transparent light green to opaque white - please indicate in order notes if you have a specific requirement - please note this may effect ship times.
Custom Cuts: Specify how many cuts and specify individual part sizes in the text box. Minimum size is 1" and remember the saw blade takes 1/8" so a 30" part cannot make two 15" parts - they will need to be 14 15/16" each. Lengths generally will be within 1/16" or less tolerance.
Custom Slots: Please specify the following when ordering custom slotting: 1) The slot length (all slots must be the same), 2) The starting point for the slot measured from the aft end of the tube (minimum is 0.5” from end of the tube), 3) The slot width - either 1/8" (.125) or 3/16" (.188). Our tolerance is generally within 1/16" on lengths and starts - please take this into account when ordering. We are not responsible for errors that you entered, please double check your numbers before ordering. Please note that very long slots may allow the tube to curl in around the middle of the slot - please call us if you have questions before ordering.
