    Default FOR SALE: HDPE Arch Tubing in San Antonio...

    This is the good stuff, it is High-pressure/vacuum Polyethylene Tubing 1-3/4" Id, 2" Od, 1/8" Wall Thickness in White.

    It has translucent properties better than PEX. It is only available available through the manufacturer or through McMaster-Carr. Because it had to be truck shipped I bought a hundred foot roll to justify the freight cost. Now I have extra material and am willing to sell it to someone local wanting to build some arches. I have attached a picture of one of the arches I built along with what I am selling. I also have another 6 foot or so piece not pictured that I will sell.

    You can see how much better this material looks than PEX in this video (and it is using C6 bulbs in that video), if using strips you cannot see the bulbs at all and it looks even better!: http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...137#post279137

    Each of the four pieces I am selling is approx. 9.5' long.

    $27 per arch ($2.89 /ft). That is the McMaster price plus what it cost me for freight.

    I will post some video when I get a chance of the HDPE arches working. I am so very happy with it, it looks amazing and the light is totally diffused. Much nicer than PEX.

    You still got these for sale? I have some friends in San Antonio who may be making a trip my way around Christmas time. I might try to convince them to get these for me and bring them out to me (for use next year).
