this place that's local to me called modern plastics sells it by the 6 foot lenth in any diameter in 1/4 inch diameter increments. In fact if you happen to have a plastics place around u pls go in and take a look there's a lot of cool stuff they sell.

The HDPE (blue and black) and the Acrylic tube were all $1.50 per pound. 18" long (w/o barbs) and 3" ID. I worry about the HDPE at the barbs, its only about 1/4" thick...will it split?

1954 Craftsman 10 X 36 with a milling attachment.

Nice setup there... do you have any readouts (analog dials) on that milling setup for the travels?

The milling attachment mounts on the carridge holder. the regular dials w/graduations are used for x and y, the z axis is in the attachment which also rotates around the z and x axis. There are no graduations for the z axis travel though. The lathe has autofeed on the x and y axis.

Here's a better pic.

not perfect, but this is what i use. i have a piece of foam (the pre-filter that came with my pump) to act as a baffle. keeps it from sounding like a waterfall. cheap and simple.
